RED

Hunger is like love

Completely consuming you

Always wanting more

 

ORANGE

The flicker of warmth

From a brightly burning flame

Brings souls together

 

YELLOW

The high sun’s bright rays

Pierce the deep depths of my soul

There is no more cold

 

GREEN

The leaves in the trees

Rustle loudly as I pass

Catch me if you can

 

BLUE

The deep blue ocean

Reflects back my heart’s sadness

It is a mirror

 

VIOLET

The brush leaves a streak

Bright violet on blank canvas

Perfect where it is

 

PINK

A sisterly bond

Pink or yellow both lovely

To each one her own

 

WHITE

Cold blank loneliness

Loud high-pitched meaningless noise

Unfair conditions

 

BLACK

Ink spills on a page

The essence of creation

A bright new meaning

 

BROWN

A tree’s roots sink deep

Reaching for the earth’s pure warmth

Growth happens slowly
