Colours



I've pondered this since I was a child What makes the grass so green I know there's a logical explanation Sure seems like some magical scheme To explain why oceans are a deep indigo Or the cerulean blue sky up above The rising sun is a bright yellow ball Why magenta is the colour of love Pink is associated with a baby's skin As we cuddle and snuggle and coo Mauve is usually the colour of sadness When life throws a curve at you The colour of nature is a wonder to behold Artists have tried to capture its magic What if the world was just shades of grey Sure would be sad and quite tragic So pray when you wake up each morning Nature's colours will still be the same It's what makes this world a joy to behold And its beauty continues to reign © Jack Ellison 2013

    Lovely poem. I sometimes wonder whether we all see colours the same, I doubt it, otherwise my fiance would be able to tell the difference between cream, ivory and magnolia!

    Lol, yes. And what a beautiful world it is! Like you said if everything is colorless, it would be so lifeless and boring. God knows what He is doing :). Enjoyed, Jack!

    And the beauty of my life is poetry, and your a piece of that puzzle my friend! You are one of natures own colors, a beautiful color: peach! That's the best I can describe the color of skin my friend, but I see you wearing that, lol! And yes, colors will always reign supreme, to bring us emotions and feelings the same as the beginning of time! What a delightful poem you have written here Jack, I really enjoyed reading it! Great Work!!
