I walk on a road lush with dreams,
a road of forgotten and veiled dreams,
sometimes slowly, sometimes gaily,
sometimes lost, sometimes profound,
I walk a road of unknown mysteries,
fervently finding my way through the endless path.....

The many shades of me :))

The many hues of life
all splashing unto me
a sprinkle here and there
or drenching wild and free

eccentric and vibrant
joyous and en- zealed
with careless laughter pouring
ORANGISH shades it reveals

passionate and intense
dawning turmoil and upheavals
I care not of lighter shades then
PURPLE is the colour I be

romantic and mystic
with powerful enchanting sways
love - the only cynosure
cherry RED emboldens me

a peaceful WHITE or fresh YELLOW
inhaling the morning breeze
or crisp like GREEN grass blades
sharp yet sunny bellows

suppressed with BLUES
maybe soft and gentle
or nightmarishly dark
dimming the SILVERY enthuse

bold, BLACK and sassy
tracing authority and Independence
or saintly WHITE and sagacious
shimmering purity and radiance

The canvas is me
and so are the pastels
I am the artist
stroking with poignant skills

incomplete and imperfect
like the crescenting moon
awaiting a Midas touch
pearly drops and dew

shining a medley of shades
infinite tones and tints
I fabricate a beautiful life
I celebrate a COLOURFUL me :))

PS : I am not sure if 'colour therapy' works but there is something I know "It is not the form that dictates the colour, but the color that brings out the form"
Wish everyone a life splashing with an array of innumerable shades! :D

  18. thats the loveliest way to express colors. different yet reconnects our own life

  19. Wow!! u made it :) I loved the poem :) :)

  20. You sure have a full color spectrum embodied inside of you. :P
    Jokes apart, each color has long been associated with some form of emotion of person, some you used like they have been, while others, you just gave them a radical newness. Nice work, I'd say.

    Blasphemous Aesthete

  21. colors add meaning to art and words add meaning to thoughts... great work as words convey a message that inspires..dynamic and change gives new meaning to life....and different shades and facets add to the beauty of life....keep writing...
