I am at home in the silence of Gray
in the chill of Blue and freshness of Green.
In the shades of Red I find the warmth of the sun streaming through trees, of summers and sunsets and crackling bonfires.
Orange is the flare of happiness
and the glow of laughter spreading in empty spaces,
The brightnes of hope and new beginnings is Yellow and
Brown is earth breathing in the rain,
the muddy tracks left in the softness of the soil. It is the color of my skin I am proud to wear.
Mystery and secrets, the depth of unknowns are in the lingering shadows of Black and
White is the blank slate of starting over again.
We are all people of colors with swirling shades of memories and dreams.
Inside of us is pallete of scars and longings.
We are all art.
