Our Daily Bread

“To see in color is a delight for the eye but to see in black and white is a delight for the soul.” – Andri Cauldwell

Inspired by the Photo Friday prompt (Rural) this week, I began a relentless search of my photo portfolio for the perfect illustration of Andri Cauldwell’s thought (and poetry) provoking quote.

Pause, delve beneath the golds and crimson reds
that oft adorn our verdant plot of earth,
Pause, understand this gift, our daily bread.

Though colors flood my lens with infrared
interpretations of the land and hearth,
Pause, delve beneath the golds and crimson reds.

For hidden deep neath shades of gray instead,
Are detailed grains; unopened eyes’ rebirth,
Pause, understand this gift, our daily bread..

The shadows of our mind’s unending threads
Continuum of trials, of toils, of mirth,
Pause, delve beneath the golds and crimson reds.

Our brightly painted shed becomes instead
A charcoal focal point, subdued in girth,
Pause, understand this gift, our daily bread.

For vibrancy distracts and oft misleads,
Masking differentials, nature’s berths,
Pause, delve beneath the golds and crimson reds,
Pause, understand this gift, our daily bread.

      Thanks, Janna. It’s so often true that we are easily taken, drawn in by the flashy colors, when there may be so much more to see beyond the obvious. Thank you for commenting…I have been remiss lately with my comments, but hope to get back on the horse soon.
