On Words and Colors

A dictionary is to a writer
what a palette is to an artist.
We learn to use these new colors,
be they against a blank canvas,
a blank screen,
or a blank sheet of paper,
through passionate practice.
Coloring and writing between the lines
with shades of colors and subtext—
the hand and mind of a true artist of either discipline,
knows how to use both in the way
that delights or enlightens not just the creator,
but the recipient.
