“I appreciate

how you’re always

so colourful,” my colleague said,

echoing words I’ve heard before

from people I admire.

Sometimes I feel

like a rainbow

in a gray scale world.

Or the one colourized character

in a black and white film.

Someone has

brighten dreary days,

and add vividness to boring views.

It could be you,

but it’s me.

The boat bumps

against the wharf

and the tourist boy

grins and offers his hand

inviting the hometown girl

to enjoy novelty

as old as time.
