The Colour of Imagination!


The white canvas stands opposite me…
As I hold the board of various bright colours…
Still deciding on the first stroke…!

White can adapt any colour…any combination…
Yet I fail to make a selection…!

This makes me wonder…
Do I prefer it as it is…Serene, pure and clear…?

“What if I paint you red…?” I ask the canvas.
The colour symbolizing two opposite extremes...of love and hatred…!
“No, I have never been on the edges, I keep a balance…,” you rightly said!

“What if I paint you blue…?” I ask again.
The colour of tranquility, royalty and freedom…!
You are not convinced, “The uproar inside me also needs a presentation!”

“What about pink...?” I inquire.
The colour of innocence, beauty and optimism…!
You smile and say, “You want me to own the trait of feminism?”…

“Ok then the colour green…?” I say.
The colour of nature, life, self respect and grace…!
“But it holds a thin line of jealousy as well...,” you state.

Finally you question-
“Why do you want to limit my horizon…
A colour would only restrict my imagination…!

Let me stand in front of you…as the white canvas…
So that each day when your eyes fall on me…
I pick a different colour from your reflection…

With you…let me have this relation…!!!
