Color Us Sacred

Listen to the colors
That linger here and there
They breathe ever softly
Finest dust in sunlit air

In every tint I have discovered
A guardian of hope has painted
A spectrum unique to each their own
Though by trials of life their vibrancy faded

Faint echoes behind walls we know
The search is on for a particular soul
Though eyes be filtered as their color passes
It's a longing we never outgrow

Color us sacred
As our journey begins
Pigments and brush in hand
Guardian of ours dancing upon the winds

Your gift is a canvas
Clean and pure
Not history's black what color was that
Your gift is yesterday's cure

Color us water pouring
Over rains sweet grass of green
This love of my life
Color him aquamarine 

Sift my eyes with his beautiful shades
Of cornflower and sapphire blue
As I turn the corner into red
The color he brought to my bed 

His beauty is lavenders scent
Unswayed by the darkest grey
Please color him in shades of pink
That our passion may never drift away

Guardian splash us with your yellow serum
Uncanny freshness on our modest ranch
With your golden sunsets and pearl moon
Reflecting diamonds there as we dance

On days when memories colors
So sharp and vivid come to mind
Color me orange my happy tone
Leaving those others behind

When our leaves begin turning to orange and red
And indigos skies loom overhead
Remind us of a copper sun
Nay the heaviness of lead

Under Eden's sky the topaz rabbit stood still
You painted us authentic earth and blues
Forgetting the regret of scarlets past an abstract
Recreating a beauty we could never construe 

Color our years passing by
In shades that ground us like plum
Grant us sweet anticipation
Of all the colors to come

Paint his arms around my waist
Our kiss a precious tone
Paint us with a substance indissoluble 
A color all our own
