Have you ever heard the phrase “being in the pink of health”?
It got me wondering,
If good health is pink and depression is ‘blue ‘,
Then what’s the color equivalent ,
For people who are neither ‘in the pink’ nor blue?
Are they purple?
Or some other shade of in-between?
If illness makes you ‘green around the gills’
Then what’s the color for people who are healthy,
Yet feel a little ill?
Now that’s a bruise.
And what’s the color for pregnancy?
Yes we all know about the reproductive glow,
But what color is it exactly,
That’s meant to represent the ‘blush’ or the ‘bloom’?
It’s got to be a color deeper than the red,
Of the aptly named ‘hot head’,
It’s got to be a color that grows
And flows with time,
Absorbing the green and blue,
Yet still remaining true.
Pink, Red, Green & Blue,
Just what is the color
Of pregnancies hues?
