Real Thought Series: Colorless

“The human heart is like a night bird. Silently waiting for something, and when the time comes, it flies straight toward it.”
Haruki Murakami, Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage

I awakened to find my eyes devoid of color

Could not differentiate between black and white or grey

The world looked the same

At least, this one did

I had become a stranger now

This was not the world I knew…

  1. Sometimes the world we find ourselves in feels completely foreign when it is not the world we consider as our real world. Beautifully described, Syl and the quote has so much truth.

  2. I’ve read the book before without knowing what the story was really about and I really enjoyed it! Very nice poem, by the way! I love the lines, “The world looked the same” and “This was not the world I knew.” I love it! 🙂
