One day Carlos found out the color of his eyes: Brown like the earth.
He was saddened because the brown in his eyes did not match the blue of his mother’s eyes. Carlos did not want the brown in his eyes, the color of earth. He wanted the blue of the ocean instead.
Then he found brown in my eyes. He found brown in his abuelito’s and abuelita’s eyes, in his tíos’ and tías", in his cousins’. He found brown in his hair, in his brother’s hair, in my hair, and in his Mama’s hair. He found the brown of my skin.
Carlos learned to see brown.
He learned to appreciate brown.
Learned to love brown.
Brown, brown of the earth.
