colorless in my pallet

Hollow silence

absent dreams

stripped spaces

Un-uttered screams

Lost desires

Unlit fires

Pillaged memories

unmoving   streams

vacant tomorrows

the world within


void of  color

But then

like red and blue

isn’t colorless

a color too

The prompt at We Write Poems this week is “Color a Poem”.  “Colorless in my pallet”  is my attempt towards the prompt.

    I favor colorlessness. After all, without a zero, what’s a 1 or a 10, eh?

    This reminds me of the poem I wrote about fog. I love pushing concepts against one another. 🙂 Enjoyed it.

    1. If anything I write reminds you of something you’ve written, my day is made!!! If possible send me a link to your ‘fog’ piece . 🙂

    Really nice. I’ve never ever looked at colorless that way, but now onward I am going to look at it, that way only. 🙂 Nice thought behind this post.

  5. As a little child I used to ponder over some supposedly useless thoughts.. “Colourless” being a colour itself was one of them 🙂

    1. Wow! You must have been one smart kid 🙂

      1. don’t know about that 😛

    This poem justifies your hypothesis perfectly.

    1. ‘hypothesis’ sounds very serious and scientific 🙂 I like it!!!

    2. Glad you think so 🙂 thanks for visiting

  7. The word colourless reminds me of some nice memories from college. Nicely written.
