Sixty . . .

What is the color of acceleration?
      or deceleration for that matter?
        or change in direction?
           red shift blue shift . . . flat time,
             straight line, changing perception

ROYGBIV . . .  Do you really perceive
     indigo exactly as I -or- ignoring the science
        of rod color signal
            perhaps we're just taught it?
              "The Malkovitch Enigma"

Red orange yellow . . .  no doubt hot, but
    who decided that green was envy,
       blue is sadness we're told,
           pastels . . . soft warm happy,
               pure colors . . . harsh cold?

The hell . . . green means life to me;
       blue . . . peaceful eternity;
           yellows are mind blowing sexual hues
              and red . . . the color of the soles
                    of my true love's shoes.

  1. I think we all have our preferences of what particular colour means to us.
    Well thought out write.

  2. One of my favorites so far. Especially that second stanza, it's odd and it works, playful with the ROYGBIV and philosophical in the sensation/perception of it.
