How I see the meaning of colours

BLUE -Is gentle and calm. Sitting above
us like a blanket covering the world,
but can have a coldness that no heart
could melt.  Yet a colour of beauty.

RED -The seductress. Feisty and vibrant, alive
and warm.  The colour of youth.

WHITE -  Glistens like snow, soft and childlike,
yet it's coldness can freeze the soul.
A colour of purity.

YELLOW - The colour that makes the world seem alive.
It is warm and bright like the rays of the sun.
The colour of happiness.

BLACK -It's darkness chills the heart, smothers the
light, leaving a depressing desperation.
The colour of mortality.

GREEN -Fresh as the springtime air. Covering the
fields that stretch afar and the leaves that
shelter the trees from the sun.
Nature at its beautiful best.
The colour of life.

WOW!!! THAT was so AMAZING MA'AM!!! The explanation you gave for each and every color is really TRUE and it's so WONDERFUL and your comparisons of the yellow color to the bright rays of sun is the most I like!!! I wish I could paint my room with PURE WHITE!!!ha ha!!!

Thank you Shika. What a dull world it would be without colour and yet we take it for granted as we do most of God's gifts. So glad you enjoyed it and white sounds great for your room ha ha. Take care.... Pat
