The colors of Eden

Green - as in new fresh leaves, or vast grass plains

 

Red - as bird's feathers, or rose petals

 

Blue - as a vast cloudless sky dotted with birds

 

Yellow - as soft warm, friendly lighting

 

White - as the feel of rabbit's fur or a flash of angel wings

 

Pink - as smiling lips of the first woman or man

 

Gray - as the after sunset moment when God and humans shared whispers

 

Black - as the velvety expanse of the diamond studded sky

 

Those where the colors of Eden.

 

There was no:

 

Green - as in slimy stagnating pools

 

Red - as in blood seeping into the earth

 

Blue - as in frost-bitten fingers

 

Yellow - as in hard hats, warning signs, or emergency vehicles

 

White - as in blinding snow, or death silenced lips

 

Pink - as in new scar tissue

 

Gray - as in chocking smoke

 

Black - as in a window less cell

 

These are our colors - but someday soon the Master artist will take His blood drenched sponge and gently wash our tear stained eyes - restoring the colors of Eden
