I was playing with colours, white for happiness 
In the glow of bliss, back to serendipity
Earth brown caught the spell of the moment
The scent of rain, heady, waiting at borders

The amber sparkling of old comforts
Back again soft and easy, I am smitten
Euphoria in ochre glances, dances back 
In unhurried moves, waltzing deep red chances

Memories thread back, orange from sunshine
They veto out caution from its dark corners
Irresistibly stubborn, they perch pretty on me
And I untangle slowly, my senses whirling pink

Wishes turn secrets, in trailing purple robes
Woken by dreams too good to be locked up
The enigma I find myself in, layer thirsty yellows
Rainbows haunt me, in my solo dance…

    Bindu, I love how you put just enough touch of mystery to your poetry, a hints whispering of enchantment and intruge, just the right garnishment of flavoring to whatever dish that you are trying to feed unto your guest reader, leaving them begging for another heaping helping of whatever you are serving. These is a great example of such, love how you've used the coloring in this work, as Andrea says the rainbow effect is bang on the mark, Cheri

    Now THIS is one I adore. I just love poems that speak colors. That's what I tried to do with my recent entry for the color contest on sounds. This is a gem!!

    There is a fellow I heard on the radio that does a poetic series describing music notes. This one of yours on colors gives me a similar feeling. I really enjoyed it.
