The grasped purple grape,

 

 

reminds me of Athenians

 

 

eating on triremes,

 

 

squeezing through the waves,

 

 

dreaming everyone is royal

 

 

in democracy,

 

 

an early fermentation

 

 

sailors still drink to.

gone the bread ducks are fed

 

 

iridescent hue Mallard blue

 

 

beautiful creature such a feature

 

 

funny antic landing frantic

 

 

so ungainly makes me mainly

 

 

praise the One who created you

WHITE

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Flag blew ore the broken dream

 

 

 

 

read through tears as the powers scheme

 

 

 

 

for the White was not, all it seemed.

The colour of hope

 

 

like a drop of rain

 

 

you must look through

 

 

instead of just to

 

 

The hue of hope

 

 

its depths are beyond

 

 

what the eye can see

 

 

in its layers of beauty

 

 

The value of hope

 

 

unmatched intensity

 

 

awakening, inspiring

 

 

a decision to proceed

 

 

The colour of hope

 

 

like a drop of rain

 

 

seemingly small

 

 

yet all the colors contained

Color of colours or vice versa, insane!

 

 

Too many for vision, thank God there is rain

 

 

to make rainbows blurry, to see mainly primary.

 

 

Among them red I like most; it stays bright in my memory.

The drop that hits the ground, you see

 

 

was most touched by one ray not three

 

 

Its colour is then determined by Thee

 

 

who saw is last in form that flees

 

 

So each are made with all sorts of hues

 

 

And moulded just so, so each may choose

 

 

Direction and faith and right to refuse

 

 

Or acceptance of the Light infuse

 

 

The color of its fleeting tale

 

 

In some is bright and in others is pale

 

 

Yet, all will stand and none curtail

 

 

The ray most touched and how it impaled

Endless blue oceans

 

 

Your depths, your eyes

 

 

Lost in a swirling dream

 

 

My ego drowns, it dies

 

 

Clocks, curtains, songs

 

 

Slow, fade, then cease

 

 

Sailing our open seas

 

 

Waves of love, of peace

Autumn drips its colours;

 

 

red and gold carpetting the ground

 

 

for the coming of the King

 

 

and the bright enthusiasm

 

 

of nativity.

 

 

We grow grey and dark

 

 

before the dawning

 

 

of the daystar

 

 

and the promise

 

 

of a brighter eternity.

Jealous squirrels hurredly forage,

 

 

before snow over leaves buries orange,

 

 

for acorns, drop some down for deep storage,

 

 

where no hunger can discourage.

Challenging myself in a color scheme

 

 

 

 

opulence my mind dost dream

 

 

 

 

a mixture of hues so divine

 

 

 

 

periwinkle comes to my mind

God's creation, foaming sea,

 

 

Turquoise waves break round 'bout me,

 

 

Brilliant strand, feet on soft sand,

 

 

Sunlit days twixt sea and land,

 

 

Swim and run, skin kissed by rays,

 

 

Watching schools of fish at play,

 

 

Thankful am I God to thee,

 

 

For this place, a gift for free.

reflected colour

Sometimes my emotions get out of control,

 

 

I stir up a red cauldron of trouble.

 

 

Maybe tears stream down my face,

 

 

maybe my anger gets the world on my case,

 

 

maybe I'm just one big question mark,

 

 

maybe I'll just write about it.

Green, the colour of Spring...

 

 

I look out my window longing, hoping

 

 

for winter to pass.

 

 

The days are so cold

 

 

and I wonder how long will it be until I see some grass?

Midnight stars light the sky

 

 

Shining, glistening,

 

 

Glowing stars, blue-white gems,

 

 

Sparkling, twinkling in my eyes;

 

 

Now I see one star, more bright

 

 

A star that swiftly passes

 

 

Comet or meteor? Oh, a satellite.
