The Color of Sunlight

The Color of Sunlight
dedicated to
First Lady Michelle Obama

by Deirdre Hade


It’s time to let up !

Put a smile on your face
brighten someone else’s day

throw away the grey
cast out the net of fear

untangle yourself
from all that despair –

It’s time for the color
of sunlight to finally
have her say.

It’s time to laugh out !

Loud at the sullen scowls
we’ve wrapped ourselves around

and all the ripples, the waggles,
the places we’ve made mistakes,

the loss. Come now –

Let’s toss them like
the pebbles they are
back into the ocean’s sea –

Let’s all be friends again,
forgive and everything will mend.

It’s time to let up!

What do we have to lose?
But a few left over icebergs
floating through our mind,

frozen beliefs that we are here to suffer
through the torment of mankind.

It’s June! For heaven’s sake
The daffodils have come,

summer’s awoke –
one more year to plan
and to plant – grow –
The fruits of happiness.

It’s time to let up!

Give yourself a break,
take a deep sigh,
spread your arms

and say thank you Creator
for giving me another day.

Yes, it’s time to let up.

Surrender –how exhausting
it has been trying to control –

(So what do you say
we Let It All Go… )

I, for one, am going to
take my shopping cart,

blow a whistle down
the street, give a skip,

a little hoot, a beat –
and share a smile with
everyone I meet.

Today, I am going to attempt
the impossible and love everything
that is wrong in this world.

Today I am going to a take risk.
I’m going to overcome
being afraid – even if fear is all I know.

I am going down – to follow
that yellow brick road

and, when I do I’ll
be gathering sapphires along

the way – all my fellow souls –

help me find that smile,
the real one with tears

until the color of sunlight
is the only color there is.

And so, to those of you
who are tired – who cry –
“Yes, it is time to let up!”

Commit to reaching across
our heart’s divide – and we will –

change this world. One Smile At a Time.

In the night we shall go in
to steal
a flowering branch.

We shall climb over the wall
in the darkness of a private garden,
two shadows in the shadow.

Winter is not yet gone,
and the apple tree appears
suddenly changed
into a cascade of fragrant stars.

In the night we shall go in
up to its trembling firmament,
and your little hands and mine
will steal the stars.

And silently,
to our house,
in the night and the shadow,
with your steps will enter
perfume’s silent step
and with starry feet
the clear body of spring.
