The writing shouldn't be based so much on the outward appearance of a color, but rather the pigments that are combined to produce the particular color. Taken one step further, the color of each pigment is translated into its symbolic meaning, which is then represented through the words (i.e., green: warm, organic, middling qualities, immortality, neutrality). The lyrical "pigments" are blended into the composition of each movement to create the impression of the color. Obviously, the whole matter of color symbolism is highly subjective.

Include these colors: Amber, Dark Jade, Blue Sapphire, Mauve, Dark Ivy, Burgundy Red

Inspired by the six movements in the song "Colours" by Roger Cichy. Look it up!
