TRUE COLOURS


Come, Be What You Wanna Be
Come, Free What They Came To See
Dive Into A Riot of Colours
Hop Onto A Hue-Filled Spree

Drench Yourself In Purple Magic
Bathe In Blue Serenity
Sizzle In The Warmth Of Yellow
Sop Up Snow-White Purity

Bask In Green And Feel Alive
Draw In Pink Resplendency
Stir Up Passions With Crimson Red
Startle With Black Mystery

When Life Affords Some Celebration
And A Rare Pretext For Revelry
Do Not Subdue Your Hues And Shades
But Flaunt Your Colours Lavishly

This poem is the result of inspiration from prompt #8 of Vinay and Reema's weekly prompt initiative called #WednesdayVerses.


A big shout out to Ankita Mazumdar for allowing me to use her image with this poem. Ankita is a 23-year old soon-to-be MBBS doctor (you read that right!!!) from Kolkata. Apart from the obvious interest in medicine, Ankita is also an avid traveller, a talented photographer, a dancer and a fashionista. You can find Ankita on Instagram at www.instagram.com/sequins_and_stethoscope

  3. Awesome. I like the opening line. Be what you wanna be. Sometimes, we forget that we have colors to flaunt, and allow other's colors to be prominent on our canvas. Enjoyed the verse.
