i am subway air;
my undergroundness apparent in your lungs
your runningaway
         your eyes i forgetᵗᵘʳⁿ ᵃʳᵒᵘⁿᵈ
and my family of trains and
   silence.

i don’t take after the transportation: i am poised poison
and my hands hold all the words i have
ever opened my mouth forᵈᶦʳᵗᶜʰᵒᵏᵉᶜᵒᵘᵍʰᵍᵃˢᵖ.

but i dance, too. everywhere. in everyone.
places and people who are not youᵗᵘʳⁿ ᵃʳᵒᵒᵒᵒᵒᵘⁿᵈ.
i can’t help it. i have no choice.
they are here, and…

and when i am tired: i stop and just am.
for however long it takes my memory to paint
something small and heavy
the lines of past decisions
the shadows of living trees
in a forest of dead ones
the shapes of a thought i once had
the color of that moment
ⁿᵒⁿᵉ, ᵇᵉᶜᵃᵘˢᵉ ᵐʸ ᵉʸᵉˢ ʷᵒᵘˡᵈ ʰᵃᵛᵉ ᵇᵉᵉⁿ ᶜˡᵒˢᵉᵈ
the movement of that glimpse
of infinite imagination that i
once made my religion.
once.

then: i stop stopping. i wake up from nosleep.
i look around and i cannot find you.

crunchy leaves swimming
rain dances in the meadows
drowning the sun rays

Watching sunsets with her is the best,
My heart beating so fast inside my chest.
Asking, “What's your favourite color?”
She answered, “Yellow, mi amor, reminds me of you, now, tomorrow and forever.”

This is, the Creator's Delight!
The Sun through the rain opens a rainbow of color.
Resounding within layers upon layers
Vibrational tones & hues.

Flowing continuously
Into each Arc & Convenient.

The seven flowering, whirling lights
Spin, emanating their specific color
Thousands upon thousands of tones & hues.

Shinning outward
Purple, Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, and Blue.

Standing together in harmony
Each a Rising Sun
A reflection of a reflection
Repeated in countless rays
Reaching from the rising base
An outstretched  fan.
  
Etched up on my mind
This memory  lingers long past sunset
Within the fan's folds
For here resides the mystery of Light.

With Great understanding. Great wisdom, knowledge and joy.
Love Arise!!
In Unity!  
The Creator's delight!
In Unity!
Love Arise!!
With Great understanding. Great wisdom, knowledge and Joy.

For here resides the mystery of Light.
Within the fan's folds
This memory  lingers long past sunset
Etched upon my mind

An outstretched  fan.
Reaching from the rising base
Repeated in countless rays
A reflection of a reflection
Each a rising sun
Standing together in harmony

Purple, Red, Orange, Yellow, Green  and Blue.
Shinning outward

Thousands upon thousands of tones & hues.
Spin, emanating their specific color
The seven flowering, whirling lights

Into each  Arc & Convenient.
Flowing continuously

Vibrational tones & hues.
Resounding within layers upon layers
The Sun through the rain opens a rainbow of color.
This is, the Creator's Delight!
This is about both a physical and spiritual sunrise and the splendor of all of the physical and spiritual color within each sunrise.

What comes to mind if I say the words
Hot and Bold,
Love and anger
Can you define them all with a single color?
I have had phases of yellow, pink and
Even white
Of lavender, mauve, and also purple
Well, that phase is here still.

But the color that I call mine
Is also my favorite wine.
It makes a woman more classy
And a man mighty sweaty

How spirited to be associated even with a devil
Oh my, isn’t that what would be the color of a rebel?

I wonder I when I took that color
to be all mine and define my personality
because of all its versatility.
Am I it or Is it me?
Because no other color defines me
It is the color of cherry, of vermilion berry
It is the color of roses and sunset scarlets
Yes, it is the color - red
That always keeps my soul bred.
What's your favourite color?

step foot and let your heart be empowered.
million colors mixed in one majesty;
like the fleeting faith of a sunflower
and the hope of each petal of daisy.
pure water pours and rushes through the veins,
deep into the soil with wisdom and grace.
voila! a rose's passion fiercely reigns,
along with its thorns that we still embrace.
the caterpillar's wings unraveling
begins the journey of a butterfly.
and marking the start of the one great spring,
the flowers dance in awe without a lie.
as seasons change, withered will flowers be,
but majesty's forever marked in me.
written with my groupmates in literature class,
joy, maria, and rose.
Standing on the precipice
Admiring the view
Knowing fully well
What stepping forward blindly will do
He said, “What’s your favorite color?”
And I said, “You.”

an amused lilt adorns two crimson lips
with a first glimpse into the deep saffron sunset of eve
crystalline aquamarine pools cast a gaze
taking delight in this time escaped

wisps of your lemon-gilded hair flee their bindings
as we steal into the lilac-hued fields of night
hand in hand, we behold the tangerine arc of the graceful sun
slipping into peaceful slumber 'neath a blanket of hillside

ne'er before seen guileless beauty follows
in the appearance of distilled magical faerie light:
auroras floating by in lavender and chartreuse swirls
across the charcoal painted skies

twinkling coral celestials reign overhead
smiling upon our watermelon-shaded cheeks
from chilled whispering words of ardor
breezing by in this, our color-breathed eventide
For the person
Like us
We yearn to understand
Every Colors
Various Shapes
Transient Moods
Amusing Lies
Even a slight change in expression
And every other details

But it's that vibe
Where we truly reside
That drives us
