We Are Colors - Poem by Fasika Ayalew

We are colors, colors to time
With varying tones
We fade away as life goes
We are colors, colors to life
Painting memories from experience
We are colors, spectrum to seasons
As winter gray,
Golden in spring as shining ray
We are colors, to a day hue
Bright as red sad as blue
We are colors, tinges to the world
In black or white, brown or yellow
We are shades in a rainbow
We are colors, parts in beauty
To perception spice
An anchor to a glance
We are colors
Black, white and brown
Brown yellow and red
Crimson, gray and green
Blue and violet
We are colors
From sunrise until sunset
We are colored feathers
On time’s wing
Brushing each day
With paints of feelings

    Fasika, this is really a beautiful poem and colorful of course. Feelings and colors are the beauties of the life. I have some reservation regarding blue color. It's sad but deep too. Ocean, sky, eyes, etc all are blue and very deep. You have a great poetic sensibility. Keep up the good work...10/10. Best Wishes.
