I’ve always loved flowers of different colours. I’ve always loved crayons of all possible shades. And I’ve always loved to see a rainbow in the sky. I know there are many more colours than just red, blue, green, yellow, black and white. Somehow I’ve never liked grey very much but it’s ok, once in a while, to have a grey T-shirt. I like the colours of life too. And especially when life isn’t grey.
I like life when it is:
Pink: When a baby girl is born in the family.
Blue: When a baby boy is born in the family.
White: When there is peace in the country.
Red: When there are two lovers in the park.
Yellow: When a person gives another a cheerful smile.
Green: When a sapling is planted by the gardener.
Black: When it signifies the peaceful protest band.
Gold: When the sun is high in the sky after a stormy night.
Silver: When the moon smiles at night and I smile when I look at it.
Burgundy: When friends meet after a long time.
Crimson: When a girl becomes a bride.
Ultramarine: When u sleep in the dead of the night with a smile on your face.
Nutria: When you don’t know what to say when your friend is crying.
Sepia: When you look at someone special and go down memory lane.
Mauve: When your grandparents are still smiling.
Flamingo: When you embark on a passionate journey.
Emerald: When you realise that your friendship is as precious as the gem itself.
Nutmeg: When you are with your family on a Sunday afternoon.
Aubergine: When there is darkness and yet you have hope.
Gentian: When you tell a child a fairy tale at night.
Ebony: When your sibling is hurt and you desperately want to put things right for them.
Mahogany: When you feel older than you are and you’re glad about it.
Magenta: When you listen to a favourite old song.
Titian: When you are in the midst of a loved ones wedding.
Amber: When you can pick up with people close to you from where you left.
Subfusc: When you can’t see clearly, when you can’t think right.
Amaranth: When you believe in fairies and in prayers.
Sable: When loved ones die.
To me, life is all these colours and probably more…after all it is what you make it to be. Life isn’t grey always.
