World of Colors--By Maricris Cabrera--Philippines

World of Colors

Imagine the world
without colors; gloom
dry, dull
dead and doom.
Colors are created
for all of us to see
endless horizon
and the deep blue sea.
Green trees, blooming flowers
birds in the sky
fishes under the water
even the shimmering sunset, oh my!
I love lots of colors
my summer dress would be yellow
dashing, glamorous
shoulders glow.
Colors make us happy
like red apples, lips of a baby
and the sparkling lights around the Christmas tree
family surround, cheering merrily.

  1. What a delightful invitation to add a dash of color to everything we see and do! Color me ready to hold your palette!

  2. Preference for colours leads one to colourful life. Otherwise life is dull, really.

  3. General happiness arising from an inner joy deep in your soul. What a celebration of all that is out there in which to revel and delight!

  4. Color creates and ignites excitement. It creates joy and gives life to photographs. It lives on as part of our memories and the colors survive in our memories long after the image has passed in real life. Color gives us feeling, meaning, emotions, passion and is part of what makes life the joy that it is. Bravo Maricris! Thank you for imagery that reminds us of the value of color in our lives. :)

  5. Nice representation of color imagery for me, Maricris! Thank you!
