A Matter of Color

I am proud of my generation.

I came from a past that must only be seen

in its black and white.

Current bright colors cannot even approach

the warmth of a singular and peculiar bygone era.

Only we who lived and loved in it are enough

and qualified witnesses to so amazing a past.

Days running smoothly, with fewer choices,

as only black phones and only white fridges.

along dear black and white films and photos.

Moreover, time to encounter lasting friends,

who endure life disillusions, jointly reaching,

so many years ahead,

colorful and unsettled contemporaneous days.
