Seven Colours in the Rainbow

Seven Colours in the Rainbow, which is your favourite one?

Red? The hot Red of fire, the juicy Red of Apples.

Orange? The tangy Orange of oranges, the blazing Orange of sunset.

Yellow? The soothing Yellow of buttercups, the challenging Yellow of sunshine.

Green? The peaceful Green of forests, the flashing Green of parrots.

Blue? The all-encompassing Blue of the sky, the comfortable Blue of my favourite pair of jeans.

Indigo? The proud Indigo of peacocks, the exquisite Indigo of twilight.

Violet? The sweet Violet of jamun fruits, the fragrant Violet of lavendar.

Seven Colours! Can I take them all?

When they were little, my kids always wanted to know what was my favourite colour. (I don't why children have such a need to classify things.) And I always told them they were all my favourite colours because it depended on my mood, to what the colour applied, and the specific tone of the colour.

I love them all. Except maybe teal...

Beautiful colors!


welcome to my world of poetry said...

I love anything to do with rainbows and your drabble was no exception.
Thanks for sharing.

All of them, please!

Thank you, everyone.

@ Barbara- what you say is so true- it depends on how you are feeling at that point of time

@ Debra - not a cookie, though that is a fantastic idea, just a decorative centre made out of clay.

And here's giving you lots and lots of your favourite colour- all zillion of them.
