Colors Beyond the Spectrum

By Dharmpal Mahendra Jain

Colors Beyond the Spectrum

Behind closed eyes,
when you appear
in pitch dark,
many colors come with you,
converting
the sweet-tempered rainbow
into you.

Golden rays knock.
A white cotton flower blossoms.
The blue ring formed by your hands
turns into your purple lips.
I look for you,
but only a lone
glistening laughter
is there.

Slowly,
the sky blue color begins glowing
as if hundreds of suns
have started shining together.
Your eyes smile in your brown eyelids.
You enter naturally like a thought
and gradually morph into flowing grammar.

Multicolored are you.
One shade I try to grasp
as new hues fill the space --
colors beyond the spectrum
that I've never witnessed before.

With closed eyes I search for you in the stars.
A brown planet covers the orange earth.
You descend in the moonlight.
I breathe a sigh of relief.
All the colors look so well on you.

Dark clouds cover the sky.
Like lightning you flash
and disappear.
From nowhere you surge
into my eyes, running away
once I fall asleep.
