BRIAN & ANGELA

COLOURS OF THE RAINBOW ~ BRIAN ~ A 4 4 6 Sonnet



 

EVERYONE LOVES A  RAINBOW ~ AMEN ! 

 

 

RED  is an enigma ~ Colour of LOVE

 Colour of Danger ~  Love is Dangerous 

RED YELLOW make ORANGE ~ Oranges

Are not the only Fruit on the Market ! 

 

YELLOW ~ colour of JOY ~ GO BANANAS ! 

BLUE & YELLOW  combine and then form GREEN

GREEN ~ is Natures calming colour in more 

Than forty shades in the EMERALD ISLE !

 

BLUE the colour of the  SEA & SKY ~ it has

A natural neutrality ~ beloved

By many Football Teams !  Indigo ~ Is

More sensual !  BLUE RED  form PURPLE

Colour of the ROYAL and the HOLY

REFRACT  WHITE Light through a prism ~ A  I   B  O  W 

 

Thanks for visiting ~ comments welcome ~ BRIAN  🧡🧡🧡

 

COLOUR has always been important to HOMO SAPIENS

especially when he invented FOOTBALL ! When GOD

created MAN he created the EYE (how could that evolve ?)

to see all the COLOURS of Planet Earth and to be able to

detect MOVEMENT and thousands of SHADES. It is only in

recent time that Man has been able to manufacture Optical

devices to do what the HUMAN EYE has been doing for 

THOUSANDS of YEARS !  I have studied the Chemistry of

Textiles and Pigments & Dyestuffs (natural & synthetic) 

and I can sure say ~ colourwise ~ What a Wonderful World ! 

 

This POEM is presented as a BLANK VERSE  4 4 6 Sonnet

in Iambic Pentameter  ~  10 syllables per line ~ OK !

    HOLA BRIAN Mio Oso Grande ! Love the colours and messages in this Sonnet : very cleverly colour coded. Love the full arc Rainbow Picture ! I have always liked the L A Song Colours of the Rainbow and the video with it complements your POEM : We do indeed live in a very COLOURFUL World ! Its been warm today 70F (21C) and sunny ! Remember in NZ we are moving from Spring (November) into Summer (December). After shopping Ruth & I were sailing again today with Ruths cousins ! Hope its not too cold (minus 5C ?) for you next week ! Its 10:30 pm here : nice to talk on SKYPE earlier : have a nice weekend MISS YOU EVERY MINUTE : Abrazos y Besos (CYBER !) Todo de mi AMOR : ANGEL 🧡🧡🧡🧡🧡🧡🧡

      GRACIAS ANGEL ~ PLEASED YOU LIKED IT ~ I knew you would like the VIDEO ~ a very colourful WORLD. Pleased you enjoying the Spring / Summer weather in AUCKLAND ! I have been at Christmas & N Y and it seems very weird to be Sailing on Boxing Day in 25C weather ! I am keeping very busy we have Carols in Sainsburys and in the Village Hall and lots of Advent related Services in Church. I will send you a Programme so you can pray for us ! Work is busy with Christmas Dinners in the Training Restaurant starting next week. I am hosting the Pensioners Lunch and also one for the local School Heads and the one for the Science / Maths staff. I have had my Monkey Suit cleaned. I am sure Ruth & Yourself will get lots of invites ! I know you will stay sober and be Good Girls ! Todo de Mi Amor tambien con Muchos Abrazos y Besos ~

      Brought a bit of colour to my morning - currently feeling very fragile both physically and mentally so this gave me a great lift.

      • BRIAN & ANGELA

        SORRY MIKE ~ I replied with a COMMENT ~ please check ! Yours BRIAN

      • BRIAN & ANGELA

        THANKS UNCLE MIKE ~ HOPE YOU WILL SOON BE FEELING BETTER ! Being Saturday Morning I had a bit more time to compose & post it. Im quite pleased WITH IT ~ and a supportive comment from Angela (Sailing in the Sun !) and your good self ~ more than compensates. I'd only just been promoted in my Job and taken on Staff so it was the wrong time to get an exchange with the University of Auckland. Im on their books for the future ~ in case ANGELA does NOT want to come home in September 2019 ! The ACADEMIC YEAR in NZ & OZ runs from Jan to Jan. We have had exchange Lecturers (Maths) from OZ in the past. They are very very laid back ! Yours as always BRIAN.

        Colour is surely a gift from above and brings variety to human experience as this fine sonnet suggests. Love the number too by Louis Armstrong who knew what a wonderful world we live in here on earth. and sang his testimony to any who listened. Though you are at present leading such a busy schedule thank you Brian for posting this tribute to the colourful rainbow.

        • BRIAN & ANGELA

          THANKS FOR YOUR ENCOURAGING COMMENTS FAY ! Normally (unless its a Field Course) Im free on a Saturday & Sunday so I can post a more ambitious Poem ~ AMEN. I love all aspects and shades of Colour ! Because GOD created such a Colourful World ~ He equipped H Sapiens with Bifocal Vision able to see in movement in 3D and to distinguish all the colours & shades in the VISIBLE SPECTRUM which lies between the INFRARED & the ULTRAVIOLET ~ AMEN. Pleased you enjoyed the Pic ~ Video & Poem ~ Yours as always BRIAN.

          A fine write Brian. Oohhh we have buses in colour schemes in our town - true! Some fancy pink ones are now a more purple colour. We have red routes, yellow routes, etc. It's moving on to animal-routes now, as they are running out of colours.
          I of course get the claret route, though they said they don't serve it on the buses. Where is the sherry route? Doh!

          • BRIAN & ANGELA

            Thanks UNCLE STEVE ~ Colour is everywhere ~ thank GOD you're not Colour Blind or you would catch the wrong BUS. I like the LONDON TUBE MAP an excellent everyday example of Colour Coding ! I would get the Green Route for CHARTREUSE ! Thnaks for your comment ~ Yours as always ~ BRIAN

          • orchidee

            And - oh it's strange. us Brits can't imagine Summer in December!

            • BRIAN & ANGELA

              Thanks UNCLE STEVE : Angela here. Its conditioning even in Spain it can SNOW on Christmas Day : in the Sierra Nevada ! Yesterday Saturday (Its Sunday here now 12:30 pm ) it said 17 November and my car thermometer said 21C (70F). On Christmas Day it is forecast to be 25C (77F). Ill believe that when I experience it. Love ANGELA 🧡🧡🧡🧡

              Wonderful imagery B&A, featuring the color spectrum or
              yellow-orange to blue-green.

              Your 4 4 6 sonnet is impressive, as well as informative.

              God not only created the rainbow to be a covenant with mankind, but we will see these exact colors circling the LORD's throne in His Shekinah Glory at the "White Throne Judgment."

              Great post. :-)

            • BRIAN & ANGELA

              AMEN TAMARA ~ Thanks for your encouraging comment. There is a lot of colour in the BOOK of REVELATION and John has shared with us : when he saw things to come through a window into Heaven ~ AMEN. Yours BRIAN.

              Rainbows are so important in Christianity as they remind us of God's Covenant.
