When color speaks

When color speaks --
of love,
or sweetness;
of tenderness and hope;
of fragility
and courage,
and the glorious profusion
of joy we were born to know --
when color speaks,
the heart listens,
and wells up,
like tears
with colors of its own,
spilling out like rain
to bathe us all in wonder.

I listen, too --
and rejoice.
