Color - Poem by Ravi Panamanna

-->

What if the world were in black and white?
Simply a stream of white light?
What if twilight were colorless
And the morning sky so lifeless?

What if the dales do not wear green
And the blues of the sky not seen?
What if the stars do not twinkle
And our romantic world void of that wink?

What if the soil were not brown
And to a colorful delight, springs haven’t grown?
What if the rainbow were simply a bow
And the moon not golden so?

Then-
The earth will cease to sing
And words no more will have wings.
The poetry of this world will die
And romantic hearts will remain dry.

Color is the animation of life,
Color is the very call of Nature.
To our hearts it lends art and grace,
God too has an artistic eye.

    Color:
    Love it! Love it! This poem make me think of laughter and joy. It sure is very colourful. We are surrounded by colour. Be somewhere where it doesn't consist of various colours than we might as well lock ourselves away and live a dull and lifeless existence. Well done for being poet of the DAY. (Report) Reply

    Well said. Very nice poem. I like especially the last verse:
