Paper Factory


The day begins in red
works its way in rainbow
with a flutter of
newsprint and manila
and delicious onionskin.

Plain or pretty
discrete brown or
provocative pink
with a scent.

But,
the tree has lost
its scent,
true green has been covered
by a mist of progress gray,
I fear the future will
be wrapped in plain brown.

Martie, sadly I think You are right.

I look forward to tomorrow, while looking back on the past. But today is the day I am living. And I expect it to be a great day!

Not your future, Martie. You are too resplendant in your colors.
