Colours and Hues.

Updated on August 08, 2016

Colours on the palette of an artist of life.

Source

White being the colour

Of virginal snow;

Yellow the shade

Of the sunshine's glow.

x

As green as the grass

Tender yet strong;

The sky so blue

Sweet heaven's song.

x

Orange the fruit

Thirst quenching for real;

Red are the cherries

A taste so surreal.

x

Lilac and lavender

Such perfumes of old;

Purple so strong

Wondrous and bold.

x

Brown is the bark

Of many strong trees;

Black being a stripe

On the honey bees




Source

Soft shades

Days so serene

Softness mingled with strength

Swirls and contours a-flowing through

Yes my heart today an artist's palette

My mind being true and now rested

My love oh so tender

Beauty shines through

Soft shades.

Source

Colours

Oh to absorb each hue

Loving each shade in nature's care

Oh to feel that strength

United waters of life

Rivers of truth

Serenity and purity mingle eternally.

Source

Share each creation

Each shade a treasure so true

From earth to heaven.

Source

Passions are reds

so bold so true;

Sadness that cold

icy blue .............................


Happiness is bright

emerald or yellow;

Mischief basks in orange

Lime to follow................................


Sated is the heart

brushed with earth's rich brown;

Nonsense are the multi-coloured

hues of the clown........................................


Oh our world

filled with colour;

Our life is the silver

of a flowing river.............................


Take each colour

paint with care;

From your heart

magical shades to share.................................

      The moon awoke me and will not let me fade back into the colors of sleep. What a blessing to be calmed by such marvel in art that reminds me why I am alive.

      Thank you for this wonderful peace of mind.

      As soon as I saw that first picture I just knew this would be multicolored like a rainbow. This was charming Eiddwen, it was rich and full of life. I voted it up and shared it.

      Beautiful as always my friend. No human artist can match the colours bestowed by nature's brush, as you have so rightly emphasized. Your words just enhance nature's beauty.
