Treasure Island

Color Blind


Everyday seemed to be rainy,
I just woke up to see the gray clouds on my window,
the birds didn't illuminate my mornings with their beautiful melody anymore,
I couldn't see more colors than black gray and white.

One day I woke up after having a colorful dream,
I could see more than gray,
I realized I was a color blind before,
because I noticed that after that rain and clouds,
there has always been a rainbow for me,
so I was color blind not to notice that colorful rainbow before,
but, they say that you can't see a rainbow without rain

My rain was just a wall not to see that beautiful rainbow,
now it has dissappeared,
I'm not a color blind anymore,
Now standing in front of my window,
I can see a bautiful bird red and blue looking for flowers,
Flowers violet and pink standing on the ground,
the beautiful green of trees and plants,
and the splendid blue of my new sky,
one of them I can't name it,
is so unique so special,
I think I'll call it...
Love....

    Hi Ana, you are as sweet as your love work, imaginative, colorful, uncomplicated, however I didn't know really if I'm right because I'm neophyte as a reviewer. I found small errors in tenses such as 'realize, notice, etc.'. Well anyway, I consider the work excellent for a young lady. (Report) Reply

    This is a very creative writing. I love to read something new. It is very
    refreshing to see the imagination of young people at work. This was a
    very good example of that. Taking something very basic and simple and
    clearly stating a new vision of her reality that was genuine and symbolic
    of her life. The reader did not have to struggle with anything at all.
    Truly lovely.

    Some people stand looking at the TV. and wonder where the rainbow is until it comes on the TV. The window is reality. PLUS: the rainbow is GODS covenant with man that he will not flood the earth again like in the flood of NOAH. (Report) Reply
