All rainbow colors,
Born of pure white
Just look at a prism it bends
Multiple colours it sends.
If I look at just one
I say “come on now, hon”
You really look best with your friends.
The color of any substance is not because of what it is, it is what it rejects or what it gives away or reflects. Something looks red not because it is red, but because it holds back everything that white light contains and reflects red. So red does not mean it is red. Red means it is not red! Whatever you give away, that will be your quality in the world also.
Purple. Calming peaceful vibes.
Green–life, sun, health.
Pink, the color of love and compassion
Symbol of forgiveness and care
The Divine Feminine in its glorious state
The ecstasy of passionate love in all its forms
A color I fantasize she wears in her love
A color he wears to balance his energies.
Laughter, joy, compassionate sorrow
All these are pink, the hope of the morrow.
Oh may I also be pink in my spirit and soul,
For it is compassion that makes all creatures whole.
Knowledge of a million years
Swirls of dark resin
Lifeblood from the tree of life
flecks of hope
from the essence of joy
Red is my favorite color. Unfortunately[?] no odes are coming to mind.
I wrote an Ode to Mother Nature back in 2010 after the massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico of my beloved Louisiana. The dark black oil spread from the Louisiana coast to the coast of Florida polluting and damaging all forms of life that thrive in those waters. Washing up on pres-teen beaches like dried blood. My words a lament for us to wake up before it’s too late. I share it below:
O Mother of us all,
We watch you while you bleed.
We drilled a hole in your heart.
We harmed your creative reed.
O Mother of us all,
Fingers point here and there.
We want to blame and shame.
Our guilt we cannot bear.
O Mother of us all,
When will we learn to see?
We dwell within your womb.
Without you, we’ll cease to be.
Orphans we’ll become,
through our own collective fault,
unless we stop the rape,
the unrelenting assault
On the Mother of us all.
Carol, that’s lovely! I remember that oil spill so well, tho I live far from the gulf. There are oil platforms visible from the Pacific coast where I lived for 27 yrs, and for many years there was tar on the beach. Thank you –
Glad it touched your heart. Blessings, Carol
Oh Carol! You are such a wonderful poet! I have loved all of your poems. I especially liked these lines, “We watch you while you bleed.
We drilled a hole in your heart.” Great imagery! Thank you!
Holly, your nurturing nature is such a beautiful thing to behold. Blessings, Carol
Oh Turquoise! How I love you with your color of gentleness….
You remind me of oceans, whose gentleness and fierceness are a reflection of where I am in the moment, but underneath is calmness, compassion, caressing us as we swim through you….
Our blood is red,
Your sky is blue,
All lives are precious
and so are you.
Wow! Thanks, JC-SF. That’s wonderful. I’ll save it to my gratefulness doc of favorite quotes.
The Milky Way upon the night sky like a frosty crack
Just emphasizes the velvety-ness of the black
The night sky unlike in the beauty of shiny black eyes
Filled with love that never dries
And yet the sky and eyes are the same
In the depth of God
They bring us home.
Color. You are a special aspect of light. Uncountable are your nouances. Your beauty is seen best in your relationship with other colors.
What fun! Thank you, Hermann Josef –
O Purple. How regal you are! Spring crocuses jumping out of a clump of snow, heralding triumph over winters long clutches. In June you stand tall as an iris, swaying just a little in the breeze. You remind me~Stand straight, posture is forever!
I thought of red first -I’m an Aries – Mars rules this planet. Red is a strong bold color. I love red fall leaves. Oddly, it is not my favorite color, I love midnight blue or my car color is Caribbean blue. Lastly, being a lesbian, gotta love all of em in a RAINBOW!!
Go, Rainbow! Thanks, Michele –
