Who brightly colours our dull dreams,
consecrates tints in nature’s seams?
Count colours, all shades and hues:
energy to invigorate me and you.
Pantone palette, vividness assigned,
colour wheel, delight-designed:
chromatic variations, created surprise,
critically curated by hungry eyes.
Who can count all colours – let them begin,
tabulate multiple shades, kith and kin.
Skin tones differ, distinct each tribe,
certain colours censored, easily proscribed.
Creator proclaimed: let there be light
moon and stars shine: romantic night;
black-tarred-zoo floats on storm deluge:
boat-bound dove, kind rainbow refuge.
