Black paper place holders don’t actually stay hung
The framed colors reside much longer
They say more
They say it louder
They stay longer than black paper place holders
“Red represents love,” they say
Yet also means anger
Why would pure love also let anger live?
It’s because red is not love
Red represents desire
Purple is a much nobler color
Better suited to define a regal emotion
Respected and admired
Yet many misunderstand the responsibility that comes with such power
On days when the dark and gloom blanket me
Blocking out the light and scratching my skin like a thick wool
I don’t blame Van Gogh
Yellow paint belongs inside us but not in the stomach
Sunflowers and golden retrievers belong in the heart
Green and pink bloom and float
The light breeze tickles cheeks
Fills hair with blossoms
A gift of new life from the trees
A tale tale sign of impending spring
