Happy new year folks
It is early 2015 and we just enjoyed the colors that graced the 72nd golden globe awards as millionaires clamored to their golden moments. But what drew my attention was the perfect reflection of all colors. This year I want to start with an article and a poem all together since they kind of blend. Or maybe it is just a new year psyche to give you something thrillingly different. So lets think about the power of colors. Its charm, the meaning and clamor.
The Beauty of Colors
Let us actually pretend men are color blind in our globally technological world where clamor for fashion and design has become the hub of all attention. It even beats logic under such assumption that women will still use colorful dresses, lipsticks, or earrings to earn attention, well, they surely get it. Attraction to such attention is admiration to beauty, which is the enigma behind all colors. As a reference to beauty of colors, Chris de Burgh’s song ‘the lady in red’ espouses red as a colorful symbol of beauty and love. To date, the song is a hit largely because de Burgh just spots this ‘lady in red’ in the romantic red color of rose flower.
Color is beauty blending nature and culture
Actually much about beauty is represented in color, which happens to be the visual flavor of the eyes. Let it not be mistaken, there is so much in beauty beyond colors. Beauty comes as personality, character, idea, perception, nature, and even culture. Nonetheless, color, my dear, defines all beauty. Look at light that shines the sun, or bulbs beautified in many colors to blurb a certain mood or to elucidate a mode. Every day the sun turns from yellow to orange and to red-orange then back to yellow-light, and it is gives beautiful dawns, dooms, and dims. So does our daily times to love, work and play change in tandem with the sunlight colors.
Ever wondered why evening beaches have romantic lighting shores closest to our feet while brightest horizon farthest of our sight? or how good dates start as the sun sets? Or why birds bask and beautifully sing during sunrise? There you go – color! Naturally, the sun’s position lights the earth at different angles shinning different colorful rays to our faces. Although men like me are colorblind to black and white, maybe we might easily see white stars in the dark nights than the yellows and oranges of the sun. Even darkness strongly hides as it shades from grey to dark and then change to the very black. It so happens that as the night grows darker we sleep deader, slipping deeper into our dreamlands. The magnificence of the night’s most beautiful stars is born in the ‘dark darkness of black’. As you submit to the admission that nature colors our culture beautifully, it goes without say that; colors have very meaningful association to our societies.
Beautiful meanings of color
I decided to summarize every meaning of the major colors in this love poem. Enjoy.
The colors you reflect
Beauty I look
but it is the color I see
blue in your mood
red of your dress
are you ‘the lady in red’?
Still beauty my eyes seek
but one color blind me
maybe mine of a man
it’s the dark of black
lacking the shine of white
Am I a colorblind man?
So are you a colorful woman?
To flirt I should think in pink
Your eyes shine yellow of the sun
the light that evokes purple in your crown
There is something in me,
Like the green of grass to be grown
a grain of love for you
it’s green that surely grows …
If you so wish to dine
I will be as historical as brown
and clad in white and black
‘you mean simple and credible?’
Yes, and you in red, ready for a date …
I see beauty
its the colors you reflect
