A Poem of Everything

Colors of Life

I want to feel the sun’s yellow

and the ocean’s blue.

I want to smell the perfume’s pink

and the candle’s hue.

I want to hear the piano’s white

and the cello’s brown.

I want to wear the gray sky

and the golden crown.

I want to draw the black swan

and the red lipstick upon my face.

I want to photograph the orange popsicle

and the purple dress of lace.

I want to see the earth’s green

and the jewelry of jade.

I want to dream of the rainbow

and the storm cloud’s shade.

I want to write of great memories

and the times with strife.

I want to experience the ups and downs

through all the colors of life.

How does it work?
