All the Colours

How do you grasp a canvas in the finite span of a day? Like the faded shadow of a half-built Goddess, the fluffy red ripping the leaf of clouds in the middle of a sundown, the tiny ripples of smoked sky facing the contaminated river, the white on the sundial. The first of the month came with a sheet of double-coated colours, replenishing the colours of my mind. All the colours the rainbows have been putting aside. The human colours. The shades that bounce back on the brown skin, yet flow inside our duality. The colour of a frail laughter and the uniform of a vulgar traffic police. Could they ever go cheek by jowl? But today was about gathering the contented tinges on my palm to resettle them on another. The colours that stroked their own blues. First time blues. The colour that consumed its singular vulnerability to mate with other colours. Blue with yellow. Black with the beautiful blonde bride.

The unsuitable couples, they’d say.

    I loved how you described a sunset. You do have a way with words, it made it so vivid and I could see the colors painted one into each other.

  16. The names of the colors in your crayon box are way more creative and thoughtful than mine. The name “burnt sienna” is about as poetic as it gets for me. You have a gift, Paul!

    I’ve enjoyed reading this piece very much. I’d say it is thought provoking! Since reading it I can’t stop thinking why we associate values and feelings with colours and why we even make it a social thing.
