Word for Today
Color often speaks in a language all its own. When we say, “I saw red,” we are making a strong statement of anger or rage. “I’m blue,” means I’m down, a bit shut off, cool to what is happening around me. Because I often find solace in playing with colors, I have created a personal set of symbols for them. For me, red speaks of passion and creative fire. Blue, of knowledge and wisdom. We all have colors that are our favorites, and some we wouldn’t touch, let alone wear. Today’s task is to speak in the language of colors. What do you see?
How does it make you feel? What color best describes that reality?
What would the world be
without royalty, magic,
wizards, lavender, and lilacs?
Sadly devoid of purple,
my nom de plume, and choice
of ink. It might take coolness
of blue, and passion of red,
but it stands alone in its mystery.
