Colours – Hues That make Up Our World

We have colours everywhere around us, everywhere we look;
Whether from the colours of the rainbow, or pictures in a book.
All colours have a different meaning, symbolizing different things;
Whether it is red, orange, pink, black, yellow, white, blue, purple or green!

Red symbolizes anger, a deep rush of blood or fire;
Orange showing signs of creativity, or the feeling of being inspired.
Yellow shows us positivity, or the brightness of the sun;
And green showing us a sign of growth and fertility, like a flower growing from a bud.

Blue symbolizes the sky and the sea, or the sadness that we may feel,
Pink showing love and tenderness, the fact that love is that true seal.
Purple symbolizes the colour of royalty, a rich, luxurious shade.
It is all of these colours of the rainbow in which a meaning is conveyed.

But then you have those strange colours, ones we still adore,
But the actual meaning or its symbolization of it still leaves us so unsure.
Colours like brown, turquoise, indigo, peach, camouflage or grey;
Yet the lack of knowing its true value doesn’t stop us from liking them or putting them on display,

All the colours in the world vary from happy to sad, dark to light;
But we know that no matter the shade, they all seem to be alright.
We love them all and can’t pick the one we like the most,
Although we know which ones are nice together and which ones are gross!

Nature – God’s Creation

Nature surrounds us everywhere we go,
It is all around us, even if we don’t know
What a beautiful sight to behold,
Giving us a feeling that sometimes cannot be controlled

When the sun rises in the morning, whether the weather is hot or cold,
It still gives off purple and red and a golden yellow, showing bold colours
It shines out bright, lights up the sky with defined illumination,
It can blend in with the rain, showing God’s awesome creation

The gorgeous flowers sing songs as they start to grow,
Giving out sweet nectar to the bees, butterflies and insects below
The different trees spread out their leaves and grow fruit,
And bury in the ground their gigantic roots

The animals are wonderful and colourful to look at,
From an animal as small as an ant to a unique specie such as the bat
These are things that we can’t describe in just a few words,
But we know it’s beautiful no matter what, that’s for sure!
