How can you explain

colors

to a blind man?

Once a blind man apporached me

and asked

"What are colors?"

I told him

that red is passion.

You feel it in your heart as you fall in love.

Red is the color of anger

that taints your mind

for good or bad.

Red is the color you feel

in your heart.

Now orange

orange is fascination

when you find something

something you could invest your entire life upon.

Orange is when you feel joy

the color filling your mind with happiness.

Orange is the color you feel

in your heart.

Yellow is the color of sunshine

the type of sunshine that fills up your belly with satisfaction.

Yellow is the color of energy

pushing you towards hope.

Yellow is the color you feel

in your heart.

My brother's favorite color

green

is the color of life

bursting forth through all of us.

Green is the color of harmony

of a deal sealed

a good job

a helping hand.

Green is the color you feel

in your heart.

Blue is one of the deepest colors.

Blue is the color you feel when you jump

leap obstacles

it is the color of depth.

Blue is the color of loyalty

your best friend.

Blue is the color you feel

in your heart.

You see

purple is luxury.

It is the feeling you get

when stroaking silk

when lying down to fall asleep

in peace.

Purple is dignified.

It is the color you hear

after an insult

calm and stable

yet fiery and energetic.

Purple is the color you feel

in your heart.

And the blind man

with his eyes full of color

and his heart full of art

could see.
