I am red...the velvet red that is rose petals; the rich red of blood and birth.
I am yellow...brilliant and warm, the golden yellow of the sun, the rich yellow of sunflowers, the muted yellow of a sunset, bright and hot with energy and unbridled enthusiasm.
I am black...a cool moonless night, shadowless and still, caught in deep sleep and silence.
I am purple...the regal deep purple of tulips and clematis, dignified and graceful, contained and in control.
I am blue...an endless summer sky with no beginning and no end, forever young, frozen in time.
I am brown...the solid rough trunk of a tree, or soil warmed by the sun, full of living things, seeded with infinite possibilities.
I am orange...a large ripe pumpkin, solid and pompous and in your face, self-confident and proud, the deep orange of mums and asters, quietly beautiful, patient and penetrating.
