Can I Dry Clean?

washing the clean linen in dirty water,
makes the clothes to be dirty and colored,
white clothe will invite the color of contrast,
color of the water that it is dipped into.

When we think of the ills and manipulate with evils,
the souls that are born white, will be colored,
when we wash the evil thoughts in evil solutions,
our souls will be soiled, colored and in illusion.

believing the color that we possess is the brightest,
If it is the brightest of white, as white is pure,
then it is all right, even if we are in other colors,
don't worry, it can be bleached to white.

White and black are two extreme colors,
with extreme characters and properties,
when the white reflects everything as good actions,
the black absorbs everything as the mother nature.

Between these two colors,
there are thousands of colors,
blending of seven colors of rain bow,
where we live and be happy and sorrow.

Washing the clean linen of any color,
in the water of dirt and sediment,
will make the linen dirty and soiled,
Where shall we find the clean water,
to wash our dirty souls of multiple colors?

    Ric Bastasa wrote a poem on this subject and I wrote the following as an answer.
    1. Bastasa, when the white light goes through the prism, we get the VIBGYOR, the seven colors of rain bow. After raining and slight drizzle, when water droplets work as prism, we can see the rain bow in the sky.
    2. When the light falls on the white materials of any kind of gas, liquid, solid and other states, the light will be reflected, that is the reason the thing looks as white, but the light is absorbed when it falls on the black materials.
    3. other than these two colors, the rest of the colors in the world are obtained through the mixing up of the colors in the rainbow.

    The same concept can be explained in different ways in different subjects... (Report) Reply

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
