Colors of Nature

Pick up a rainbow and a few metallic shades:
The Sun takes from Red to Yellow,
The Sky that forms the backdrop-
From Blue till Violet,
Sometimes, it reaches till Red.

The nature takes the shades of Green-
Also, Brown- that’s obtained when all colors are mixed.
That all colors when absorbed produce Black,
And when reflected, form White,
is not “logic”, but a Science.

Look above yourself-
Golden is Sun’s fiery rays,
Silvern is the cool Moonlight.
The Stars are the Gemstones precious,
Diamonds and all the colored ones.

The meteors maybe the minerals-
The shooting ones, the white metals..
The burning ones- the yellow metalloid;
Asteroids the other ores,
The Comets maybe the shining crystals!!

Birds, Butterflies, Worms, Flowers-
Take all colors and shades possible..
Humans although take from beige to dark brown,
Seldom shows the gravity of containing all within themselves-
They appear to be hollow’ ones devoid of any color at all!!

    Some humans are quite colorful though, and I think you are one of them. I wrote Nature’s Kaleidoscope for this weeks entry. I agree with how colorful and lovely nature is, and I do like the ending because much of mankind tends to be dull beige.

    Olivia this was such a great take on the theme especially the bubbly picture with nature, the poem was just as colorful as the words written.

    Olivia, I am a first time visitor and I am glad I stopped by. Blaga sent me your way! I feature poems on my site once a month and I would like to showcase this one. The segment is called Poetic License. November’s posted on the 16th if you would like to visit and see for yourself.

    If you allow me, your poem will get full credit to you and a link back to this site. Also every quarter I will post the previous four months worth of poems in one large post. If all meets your satisfaction I hope you agree to this. Thank you in advance for the consideration. I have two one spot left in January, and February is a themed month. March is completely open though. I think this poem would fit better in January because it’s a new year and your poem suggests newness. Thanks again.
