black, white, blue and green
red, yellow, brown and orange,
the shades referred as pastel,
bright, soft, striking, appealing
and appeasing to the beholder
Black is beautiful,
shining and sparkling
held with contempt by those
who consider white as superior,
the racial discrimination
runs deep, non destroyable,
The metal gold takes the cue
of yellow, brilliant and bright
loved by one and all, again
the colour of a race known
as Mongolian who inhabit
the Asian region.
The Red Indians natives of the land
discovered by Columbus
pushed to the corner by the Whites, the
red hue represents danger, one that
cautions, stands for Stop In the signal
liked by most, catches the eyes either way
graceful and gaudy.
Blue qualifies Nature, sky, sea,
river, water in general, though
water is termed as colourless liquid.
Boys go with blue, the hamper
for boy babies consists of bluish articles.
Blue blood commands royalty, while blue
veins crack a deficiency, mainly of the heart.
Green denotes prosperity, Go green, the slogan
cares most for the environment, The lush
green forests, foliage , the vast expanse of grass
propose a feast to the eyes, a source that bring
rains and breeze, promoting the much talked
about subject, ” Climate Change” The others
follow the brigade in rapt attention,
So passes the rays of the long story
of colours, bright and dark, somber and sullen,
reflecting feeling and sentiments
each one for an occasion, a galaxy
that none can spare nor shun.
