It was another usual day
Not much in the way of highs nor lows
So how to provoke my desired state of being?
The light turned red, I slowed up and obeyed, first in line to speed off when given a greenie
Then, my perspective on and of the world changed
As the color periwinkle appeared rather than the expected
I was bemused
Should I take it as a sign?
That it is in real life, but what of the metaphorical sense?
Maybe a gentle reminder of the immense beauty that remains unseen in the world?
Another example that modern technology was, yes, once again askew?
Possibly that I should be pursuing all the Peri Winkles listed on eharmony?
My reverie was interrupted by the sounds of horns squawking directly behind me
Being irritated because I was ahead of them was awfully shortsighted
You know, they could go around
I quickly sent out this vibration: ‘relax all, I am having a spiritual moment’
But I didn’t think I was going to get me a witness
A scruffy man appeared at my driver’s side window
He bellowed “are you hard of hearing or just blind bud?”
On my right was a kind-looking woman who knocked and asked “do you need help?”
I turned in her direction, smiled, then hesitantly asked, “do you know your colors?”
