The Message of Color
by Sylver Cheetah
Age Group: Adult
The color that is not, black.
Night in time shows all that we lack.
Sable as the inside of the chaos sack,
Charcoal protection for the void's attack.
A raven is the wisdom's track.
Ebony infinity will not crack.
A shade that encompasses all, blue.
Azure, to show truth for a few.
Cerulean as the water swam through.
The western sky unveils fidelity anew.
Cyan peace dabbed in a simple brew
Causes sapphire loyalty to hold true.
Tint me a fiery red,
Courageous blood I've bled.
Scarlet for the passion in bed.
The cardinal for faith we've said,
Rubies for joy adorn His head.
Love as a heart, a southern thread.
An abundant hue, hail green.
Verdigris in Gaia I've seen,
As grass grows a life serene.
Northern berylline healing shall intervene.
Emerald eyes of a youthful teen
Reveal immortality's chartreuse queen.
Singing in tones of yellow,
Beauty is canary's tinkling bellow.
Sunny attraction brings a fair hello
To flaxen easterner who plays the cello.
Intuition's auric slant not mellow,
'Tis golden air to the prosperous fellow.
That which takes pigment from all, white.
Purity abounds from an ivory sight,
Fear not the pale angelic delight.
Devotion is alabaster in form and fight.
Spirit from the clouded mother's plight
Makes cream-toned illumination's might.
Author's Notes: I wrote this over the summer, doing a little research on the useage of color in history and from what I already knew. Most all of this poem is symbolic and must be taken at both face value and with implied meanings. If you take the time to study this piece, you will find I play on words and concepts. After having written and reviewed it, I found that it has a prophetic quality. Please feel free to contact me with opinions, praise or even your own work that you think I might enjoy. I prefer CONSTRUCTIVE criticism (i.e. Don't just say I suck. That's just mean and uncalled for)
