But, sleeping soul, remember the promise of spring. Remember how the dark gray days become pierced with one tiny green shoot coming up from the ground? Remember how it leads to another and another, and soon the whole world is vivid once more?
That vividness, that newness, would not speak to you, spirit of mine, if we didn't first rest in the subtlety of browns, grays, and blacks. Those colors would appear to fade if they weren't dynamic like they are now.
Can you tell I'm still coming to terms with winter? It's not the rain; I love rainy days. It's the endless drone of night, the planning that is involved with every step out the door. No running out barefoot, no spontaneous days lazing in the grass. I'm trying to be more openminded to the season of hibernation, but as you can see, it is taking a lot of effort on my part.
The great part about this link up is that the one word prompt inspires so much in so many. Head on over to check it out, and link up your own COLOR story.
