COLORS, by Celaine Charles

We live in a colorful world, one that speaks if we listen.

This collection of poetry captures the shades and tints of color I find in my walk along life. The world shines in hues of sorrow, fear, joy, and victory. It’s quiet and thoughtful, though has the potential to scream at the top of its lungs. The world is full of color, even when it appears colorless. And, there is always chroma within the softest of hues.

My wish is to inspire a color in readers with each poem read. Not everyone experiences color the same, but perhaps they will revitalize by taking a moment to perceive what emotions are felt...when noticing them more deeply.

For six months, I published two poems each week, Mondays and Fridays. One to start the week, and one to finish. All proceeds from this series are donated through Channillo Charities to “Mary’s Place,” a Seattle-based organization helping children and families facing homelessness.

I welcome your thoughts in the comments along this journey. My hope is to polish this collection for publication in the end.Your encouragement and critique will pave that roadway, helping me leave a legacy of color to the world in gratitude of its muse.

*Thank you for your support and encouragement, as I was able to publish a collection including 31 of my Channillo poems (along with a few new ones) into a pictureque book, Colors Collected, Poetry Inspired by the Hues of Life. It's available on Amazon, and I couldn't feel more honored and proud. Thank you Channillo!
