A/N: Once again some musings about colours. I only translated No.2, for I could not find an adequate way to translate No.1.

Colours are nothing more than what cannot be absorbed and is reflected instead, right? RIGHT?

No. 2

Red is

what you name red;

Black is

what dwells when white is no more;

Green is

what is born by blue and yellow;

Violet is

what has defeated orange;

Brown is

what appears when ochre vanishes;

Turquoise is

what you see when you run out of red;

Grey is

what has replaced gold;

Silver is

what knows no pastel tones.

Colours are

all we take with us into the Next World.
