Colour me black
like a mummer’s face
shielding me with midnight’s cloak.
Colour me blue
Cool as the shade
Juggling through life, whistle and gait.
Colour me red
Fiery and hot
Senses brimming with burning passion.
Colour me white
As a graven lily
Still and fair, death’s embrace.
Colour me green
Rising again, pinning for light.
Colour me rainbow
all life twirling
weaving through this iridescent loop.
