I heard RED aligns with anger.
1940’s lipstick welcoming World War veterans home
Blood given for the sake of someone you’ve never met
Laces on a ball that can link generations
How is that angry?
I heard ORANGE represented rebellion.
Leaves in the fall, painting Norman Rockwell images of family gatherings
The golden gate bridge, an iconic mark of architectural genius
A fox. What does it really say?
Where is the rebellion there?
I heard YELLOW cues caution.
The shining sun welcoming a new day
Golden waves of wheat, providing provisions for millions
A rubber ducky promoting good clean fun
Why should I be cautious?
I heard GREEN elicits envy.
Grass stains on the pants of athletes diving to catch an opportunity at greatness
The soothing smell of a green, lush forest after rain
A Muppet frog teaching compassion for every race, creed, and color
I see no reason for jealousy.
I heard BLUE was synonymous with sadness.
The dress of a Disney princess helping little girls believe in happy ever-afters
Caribbean waters reflecting a clear sky inducing total relaxation
“Bluebirds singing a song. Nothin’ but bluebirds all day long.”
Who is saddened by that?
I heard INDIGO advocates obsession.
Freshly dyed denim, like a child’s mind, free of distress, fading or corruption
Huckleberries with a taste so tempting that humans, bears, and species of all kinds will risk interacting when they otherwise would not
The night sky in the final moment of transition - a deep breath and the release into relaxation
What is obsessive here?
I heard VIOLET communicates corruption?
Lilacs, beautiful, intoxicating and as sweet as the girl you gave them to
The amethyst exposed when a geode is broken
A crocus emerging from the snow offering a gift a hope and joy
None of this is corruption.
These colors surround us every day.
They are everywhere, in everything
And so is awesome
If only you choose to see it.
