The kind of blue a sad trumpet sings
While jamming with the emptiness
Of lost opportunity.
The shade of grey that clouds
My darkest thoughts
And the red of angers’
Slowly burning embers.
We’ve all felt these colours
And many psychedelic others.
But the pure white kiss
Of transcendental bliss
Is the hardest colour to see
And the most wonderful to be………

    Lovely Ray. If you know the pure white kiss of transcendental bliss then you are spiritually enlightened indeed. xxxx

  • Thank you Jane! If only I were enlightened…this fallen angel will wander the multi-verses for a very long time……………………………xx

    Strange thing Ray….those who are always bragging about being so spiritually enlightened are usually the ones that are the fallen angels. xx

  • So true, as a lapsed catholic who has studied different religions, I still find myself searching for truth in this web of lies……I can neither prove or disprove the existence of God…and none of the major religions have any irrefutable answers………….xx
