Chapters 6-10

 

 

new world 

 

light

and color

and the something

are not all the things

in this new world

 

I study

things

that are all around me

 

I wonder

what

they are for

 

the things in this

new world

are cold

uncaring

dull

with not

one

drop

of color.

 

they make me shiver

but the something

is comforting

 

the something

is color

is light

or at least 

it is

to me.

 

 

away

 

the something

moves

 

it reaches

for me

and I become weightless

 

I now see

that the something is more 

than light and color

it is warm

warm against the cold

of the world I am in

 

the something takes me

away - 

away!

 

no longer

am I trapped

in this world

with not a hint

of life.

 

 

noise

 

wow!

I am amazed

the new world

is not cold

uncaring

or dull

 

the real new world

pops!

springs!

jumps!

 

color

everywhere!

 

light 

bursting from every corner!

 

and

more somethings

moving

moving

moving

 

but

what is that?

I can't see it

but it must be there

 

sweet

my mind

wants more

so hard to describe

but so natural

I know it at once

 

it is 

noise.

 

 

song

 

the noise

I hear

surrounds me

but one sound stands out

distant

although close enough to ring sweetly

in my ears

 

it goes up

and

down

up down down down up up down up

 

a noise

but is that all?

no

it mus be more

song?

 

it comes from 

everywhere

somewhere

anywhere

filling my mind

with thoughts of the color

I discovered not so long ago

the color

that floods the world

the color

that encircles

the song.

 

 

fly

 

the something

carrying me through the crowd

brings me closer to the song

 

what

wonderful thing 

is making it?

 

a streak of color

bright

shoots in front of me

 

with it 

it brings the song

taking it to someplace new

 

no!

don't leave!

but I suppose

there are others who wish to hear it too?

 

I find myself drifting away

the world, a distant memory

lost to the darkness

 

I dream

of

color

a song

and flying

away.
