Reena’s Xploration Challenge #222

Welcome to the colors of spring!


We again have a set of two images this week, to be used singly or jointly as your prompt.

There is no restriction on length or format of the piece. There is no last date either, unless you wish to be featured in the Weekly Wrap. 

Any post that is found to be offensive, vulgar or something that hurts common sensibilities will not be included. This needs to be a safe space.

Create a post on your blog, and copy-paste the link in Comments. In case you are using a pingback, do check back to see if it has worked.

The feminists, humanists and individualists amongst you are welcome to follow us at

  1. Hi Reena, here a poem I wrote a few years ago ..

    Birds of A Feather
    to colour us all tanned
    black or white
    didn’t seem right
    even a humorous sight
    maybe blue and green
    would’ve been a better blight
    and I’ve been told orange
    is a preferred skin tone
    best we have more colours
    I’ll go buy the paint drums
    toss them together
    shaken, not stirred
    into one huge cocktail dish
    and use a whale-hair paint brush
    we’ll all be covered the same
    a faded colour purple
    like tarnished rain clouds
    not too dark
    not too proud
    not too white
    just bright enough
    to see the light

  2. Myriad Colours

    Day breaks and scatters the ‘black’ night sky,

    With pieces of ‘bronze orange’, forging a ‘violet’ dye,

    As the Sun, crackles curiously through the gaps,

    Hues change from ‘tangerine’ to ‘golden yellow’ laps,

    Soon, the Sun is out from hiding,

    Cloaks, the Ether with ‘azure blue’ shading,

    A rainbow arc, comes forth some days,

    A spectrum of seven colours, she displays,

    Each colour has a defining trait,

    Enhanced, by a contrasting taint,

    Nature orchestrates a beautiful symphony,

    Blending colours to indulge the world, sweet as honey,

    The ‘crimson red’ flowers, adorned with green foliage, creating a riot,

    The ‘pink’, ‘purple’ and ‘blue violet’,

    Nothing is plain ‘black’ or ‘white’, ‘grey’, is the tone of reasoning,

    Bonding of diversity, adds meaning,

    Understand, no one colour can rule the world,

    A palette of different tinges, gathered in a fold,

    Shall bring peace and harmony,

    Indeed a colourful symphony.
