Life’s shades

Colours are the source

Of love and happiness

Which enlightens a heart

Gull of sadness.

Tears are washed away

A smile appears on the face

Of those who believe

In the magic of colours.

The beauty of love

Is reflected in rich red

It is the identity of married women

My grandma said.

Nature has dressed its beauty

In the colour green

People wonder aloud

Looking at a nature so green.

Blue is the sky’s face

That it shows the world

I hope it also has

A pleasant heart and soul.

Yellow defines


Audacity and


It spreads as light from the sun

In villages and across cities.
