Otareri Enoh Samuel Poetry is grey. All our evil and good, our fears and triumph, nights and days, all represented in the intangibilities of its excence; poetry is a cat caught in the grey glare of reason. Only a shut eye beholds its meaning…

Lolah Lyrical Kay Poetry is Purple! It represents power, nobility, luxury, and ambition. It conveys wealth and extravagance. Purple is associated with wisdom, dignity, independence, creativity, mystery, and magic and all this more is poetry!!!!!!

Nura Ahmad Poetry is White they say, but I thought it should have a tint of green. If the white is peace the green should be life. Supposed it’s a tree, the stem should be red as the colour of blood. The roots should be black hidden dip in the soil. During the day, half of it exposed in the sun, while the other half concealed by the shadow. In the night the whole of it is consumed by the doom of night but never consumed by the dreaded doom of death. Such indeed is the colour of a poetry and the why it should be.

Craig Wright Poetry is every single colour combined in unity, to show us the purity that oneness contributes to our society. A certain kind of passion and love that can only be contributed to us by God above, which makes me feel inclined to cross over the line and discover the refined kindness that poetry defines.
