Colours of Me: a poem

I have spent much time recently working on jewellery projects. It relaxes me and recharges flagging batteries. My latest design was a rainbow-hued bracelet that features an artist’s palette. I got thinking about myself and the colours that reflect who I am.

My multi-hue palette bracelet.
Unique palette, colours of me,
Passions in red - creativity;
Deep pool visions, dream-state in blue
knowledge is power, wise-mind is true;
Jaundice yellows, venomous thought,
Cold, black defeat in battle not sought;
Orange-amber transparent cage,
untrue, uneasy, traps puerile rage;
White hot anger and leprous guilt,
Shades of green weave serenity quilt;
Affirming purple, empowering me
sure-foot confidence, positivity.

Do you have colours that reflect how you feel, or who you are?
Favourite colours? Or ones you cannot stand to be near?
If you have enjoyed my post please like, share, and comment.

Thank you for reading.

Diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder after fifty years in the mental health system I decided to share my experiences and consider the impact my health has had on my well-being. Being creative is the mainstay of my life and it's how I express my deepest emotions. Photography, writing, and design challenge me and help keep me rooted in the present.
