Colours of the Wind.
The sun echoes out
across the sky,
ignites the silver linings,
creates a soft pink hue.
The contrast against
a blue canvas
mingles, seeps together,
produces a lavender glow.
Over the hill on the horizon
there is nothing but white.
A cascade of peaks,
mirroring the mountain opposite.
Where the sun illuminates proudly
there is a spill of orange,
by a tinge of lemon.
As we turn the corner,
all there is, is grey,
the dull sadness and blandness
pierced by the colours as they link,
and fall.
