Dancing Colors..

Dancing Colors..

A Poem by The Quill

A little girl one day decided to paint

To paint something abstract; no shape

To let brush dance on sheet with no restriction

Let colors sense the rhythm her thoughts make


So she took the palette of colors out

Dip brush in blue and was about to add some water

The blue drop was holding the last strand of brush

Getting its strength together and not to shatter


But slowly it succumbed to the will of girl

And started its voyage to paint a thought

“Tip”!! The sound came; color drop fell in water

Mingled with it; won the heart; how nicely it fought


Now it was more powerful and in proper shade

Neither too much glossy nor too much fade

The drop then kissed the canvas, leaving its mark

Then girl thought to make the shade little dark


She then mixes brown, green and black; hits few strokes

The colors are running on the sheet; mixing and playing

The thoughts of the little girl taking shape;

On canvass the green grass was laying


Two blue together formed the sky

Big and calm; carrying grace and charm

Then there are few shades of brown and green

Forming lands and meadows; what a beautiful scene


Then few shades of white together dance and form a horse

Riding on white clouds; heading to the endless zone

And then few more colors took the shape of little girl

Sitting near the flowing river; dreaming & playing with hair’s curl


The colors danced all over the canvas and then froze

The little girl was staring at the painting; slowly she rose

Along her clapped the vibes, air, trees and flowers

Then she added few drops of grey to bring showers


Together all colors danced and made the painting

Little girl was looking at her painted self; her beautiful smile

She then added few drops of orange to blossom a bud

And hence there was a beautiful painting of “the dancing colors”
