Colour of Happiness Poem by Kevin Patrick

The colour of anger is Red
Frustration connubial to Dread
The colour of love is Purple
Sanguine to Aphrodite's myrtle
The colour of life is green
Freshly mixed with infused submarine
But the colour of happiness is transparent
A viscous antonym of denotation

and I am the colours Souvenir
Cheap, artefact of a personas facsimile

    The color of happiness is white because it has all the colors of a rainbow, it is transparent only if it is pure. A great write. (Report) Reply

    Abstraction. The definitions and ideas envisioned here, indeed, are interesting concepts.
