The Colors We Become

Golden
yellows
fade, and
reds disappear
into
clouds
of
majestic greens,
lazy oranges,
and deep
browns;
Oh, the
dance
has
already
started,
and we’re
missing
the
most
important
color
yet.

  1. This one stumped me. I have read it a bunch of times and have struggled to connect the verses.
    Help!!

  2. there is always another color to become, thats whats so exciting, we are all chameleons.

    • Exactly!

      In looking within ourselves, we can often find many layers of who we’ve become over the course of our lives. At times, these “colors” show themselves more vividly than, let’s say, other colors within us. Life, as we’ve learned over our history, has a way of showing us the truest colors that promote a more intimate way for us to grow. So, in essence, we become chameleons (as Russ stated…) because in doing so, we allow ourselves to freely express our connections to the things and stimuli around us.

      The “dance” is synonymous with life and its pursuit, whereas the “most important color yet” is by far the colors that we’ll become in the future. It is only in this light that I believe truly reflects our ability to connect with the people around us. It’s even better when we’re able to share colors to form completely new ones.
