We Are Colors

We are



Like a newly blossomed rose, red

As the polish on misunderstood nails,

The velvet spread across the lovers lips, red

As the blood flowing through the beating heart


We are



Like the sky clear of misty thoughts, blue

As the waves crashing onto silent cheeks,

As the eyes full of secrets locked away, like

Bluejays slowly coaxed to sleep


We are



Like sunshine streaming through school windows, yellow

As the forgotten hills of daffodils,

The cat’s wise and naughty eyes, like

Lemons squeezed of juicy life


We are



Like the blooming grasses, green

As rising lilly-pads under croaking toads,

As the luck so few can wander upon, green

Like lollipops dancing in smiles


We are



Like mauve sugar-sweet frosting, purple

As tulips under spring’s storm, like

The spine of a story unknown, purple

As the tongue touched by blackberries


We are colors

Flowing through our souls
