Strewn with colours..


from the pale blue of a sunny sky
to the thunderous grey of a stormy night

from the green of a healthy pasture
to the brown cracked earth of barren land

from the stark perfect swirls of a frustrating white hell
to the soft embracing mists of a mauve heaven

from the yellow blossoms of friendship
to the dull orange dead flowers of relationships no more

from the red heat of passion
to the pink of puppy love

from the protective black blanket
to the impenetrable grey rock

from the laughing rainbow

to the colourless tear..


I am a cauldron of all these hues..poured together..
stirred by the wand of life..
sometimes one
colour dominates over the rest..
but they are all there
just waiting for their turn to come to the fore..and tint my world..

@destinyfavchild
well what can i say..i wish i could always be about exuberant colours..but the truth is that i am as much about the sad colours of destiny and pain as i am about the exuberant colours of my name..

"pieces of a tattered soul across a stark white screen.."

To that, may I add 'white' is that colour encompassing all the other colours of the visible light spectrum. So, mix the right amount of colours and behold - you can be the best!

Gonecase said...

Yes ofcourse
