~The Color of Silence~

Updated on March 4, 2014

Words come quick, and many

…too easily for me

Paint in, then, my silence…

What color would that be?

What color would you paint those thoughts

That all my words can’t say

Would you begin with classic black

Or fifty shades of grey?

Blue is my soft-spoken tone

While red claims center stage

Green moves me to fields unknown

And purples passions rage

Silence by itself would speak

And say you need to hear

What color, then, would be the paint

That makes my message clear?

Yellow seems lighthearted,

And bids the break of day

Orange draws that curtain closed

As yellow fades away

I think sometimes, of tender pink

The bud has yet to bloom

Brown tells that I’ve been here,

Perhaps arrived too soon.

So silence is the canvas

And perception is the art

What color will you choose to tell

The message of my heart?
