Rainbow, Colorfully Colorless!

By: Rehanul Hoque

If light is life
Then VIBGYOR is the secret code
Of life, that speaks volumes for
Existence.

Daubed with a paint
Objects and beings become colorful
As much as to declare
‘I exist’.
On the contrary, the absence of color
Makes life dreary and drab enough to become
Non-existent.

In between life and lifeless-
The colors mingle together to form
Humanity, having no image.
Neither black, nor white, nor albino or brown
Arrayed in a light beam- all are colorless
In a rainbow nation.

Yet, at times, a certain color outshines others
It’s an exception, a supernova!

The dazzling beauty shines bright
No doubt, it’s ‘White man’s burden’
To shed light over the darkest corners
On earth!

Light is life
Life is colorful
A Rainbow has no image
It’s colorfully colorless!
