A Roller Coaster of Colorful Emotions

Adaptation of Photos by Yulia Gadalina and Aiony Haust on Unsplash

Red

Brimming faces

Promised threats

Flushing with hurt

And fear of regrets

//

Orange

Like the sunset

The flowers, the books

This is the color

My love undertook

//

Yellow

Glowing, dazzling bright

Full of sun and firelight

Kissing your skin

A welcome sight

//

Green

In the trees

The leaves, the grass

We finally reached

Beyond the glass

//

Blue

As the sky

Limitless and full

Miles from home

Until the yule

//

Indigo

Birds

Waters and fruits

A restful sky

And calming flutes

//

Violet

Memories

Of blistering faces

Left to dwell

In complacent places

//

These are my colors

That pass with each day

Something to love

And reasons to pray

//

In their absence is no life

Blooming, budding, burning bright

For a world of our choosing

Exploring and musing
