The Color Missing

The Color Missing
Red, black, and blue are the colors of our work pens. Red is the color of the blood we spill on other people’s mistakes.  Blue is the color of the songs we sing on tax forms or pay stubs- every page has a secret melody. Black is the color of the streets we fear most. Black is the color of our signature of approval. Black is the color of our death.

‘But what about the Green pens?’ I ask. They say ‘the ink is too hard to see.’

Poem Details | by Bernard Chan |
Categories: autumn, color, funeral, imagery, nature, seasons, summer,


from afar, leaves like uncounted catatonic fires  
huddled close
pinned to the chill air

a pointillist’s love affair with a hundred shades of red

the ground is a fresh wound, edgeless 

a breeze worries the boughs 
stokes the hanging flames into quivering  
renegade ambers

a slow burn resumes

accompanied by a susurrus of sighs 
a dirge for a season

and the summer sky, now turned slate,
is cremated

Soul Love

“Never the end…never!”

Death in armor rides true
Through universal star skies dew
His red halo glows as a blood brew
Opal bones burst roses stew
Souls swirl through his world heartbeat hue
Time touches truth blue

Death in Disguise

Pattering rain shattering on grey road
With grisly green umbrella she troad
In a black attire looking ghostly white
Her red woeful eyes sending fearful jilt.

Watery moon painting yellowish lips
Frozen fear dancing on pink finger tips
Her flowing hair sweeping pain of ashes
An orange lamp blinking passing wishes.

Violet blooms falling from whining trees
Covering brown earth - a graveyard in pleas
Ah nature, dull and dreary, standing still
Her fervid eloquence under blue spill.

My canary cage cried a fearful moan
While eyes shifted, into thin air she gone.

ashes in an urn

ashes in an urn
a lovely new urn

whose ashes are they
who was burned that day

what races
what religions
what sexes
what nationalities

maybe they’re all mixed in 
ashes indistinguishable and
undiscriminating in one 
could there be hope

Distant Minds

Shedding tears
Distant minds,
Don't look at me,
I'm fine.

All the blues.
All the times,
Not having clues.

Turning blues
Into red,
Freshly cuts,
Doesn't fade.

All the reds
Never turn to pink.
Empty finger,
No band no ring.

Red to black?
Way too hard,
Courage's lack.

Distant minds
Not a tear.
Pushin' daisies,
Without fear.

The Clothes We Wear

There’s a lady dressed in white. 
She smiles in the morning light.

There’s a man who’s dressed in brown. 
He scowls as the sun goes down. 

There’s a girl who’s dressed in blue
Who got her hands stuck in glue. 

There’s a boy who’s dressed in red.
It’s not his clothes, he’s just dead.

Boat Of Poverty

Why this boat?
Could it be boat of destitution?
Conveying Epidemics, Hunger, Rags,
Malnutrition and Illiteracy.

Descend from me!
Banish from my world!
You cursed word!
You that called education a"Privilege"!
Patrimony of ghetto!

W.H.O called you "Lion of Africa",
U N called you "Agenda ".
Predicament to black,
Livelihood to white.

Harking to conviction,
Capsize and rise no more.
For "Black Rose" to smile again
On the land of plenty.

Alone with My Thoughts

Alone with my thoughts-
My Mind concocts
A thousand, million, billion dots
Connecting through my Brain

Colors spread through the depths of my Head
Then I wondered, "Am I dead?"
For no one ever said-
The Truth could hold such pain!

My Sunshine

I love you now more than ever ,
For you mean the world to me ,
I love everything about you ,
I'll search around the world for thee .
Your smile is so inviting ,
Your kisses are so divine ,
I want to hold you in my arms ,
And bring you safely home .
Whenever I am near you ,
I shake like a willow tree ,
The stars above shine brighter ,
Cause you belong to me.
The Ocean's wave in unison ,
They want to drag you in ,
But I am here to save you ,
" True Love' is from within.
I'm waiting by the window ,
Letting the sun shine in ,
Will you be there for me my dear ,
Together and without sin .

An aspiring marine 
is assuredly green, 
but he's not as much green 
as a drowned marine.

Autumn Leaves

Trees shed

Their Autumn Leaves.


Autumn Leaves-

That fall,

That twirl

And then embrace the ground.


Autumn Leaves-

That flood

The pathways I tread

And the horizon I see.


Amidst them, I halt

Amongst them, I sit,

Stare and admire

Them as they shower from trees.


I listen to them,

As they rustle,

And cuddle

In the soothing autumn breeze.


Wondrous it is to listen

To the tales they tell,

Tales spelled in their toungless accents

Tales that are the soul of each of those

Falling, twirling, rustling

Autumn Leaves.

Pitch black

Pitch black
An overcast of darkness
It’s a misery
Its all I see

Do u see what I see?
The little girl crooked her head to
 look around the room
Is it the sky?
Why its nothing like 
That my child
See the world from my eyes 
The old woman raises her hand to touch
The girls face
Why are you so cold
My child
I see the sun

if emotion had color

if what we do
if what we did
if our emotions 
had colors
that we could see
what color would we be
dark red with passion
bright red with love
black with anger
or a mixture of colors.
what color is your heart
is it perfect
for your body
or is it imperfect
for your soul.
if emotion
was colored
who would 
you be?

Color Blindness

Oh, you are so wise
judging with your eyes
what you see
merely a figure
something to despise.

Oh, you are so sympathetic
kind to those who seem pathetic
If you could look beyond skin 
you'd see a soul free of sin.

Oh, you are so kind
living with closed eyes
judging all mankind
If only we were color blind.

War of the Rose

Drenched upon the battle field
Under silver weapons wield
Misdirection her only shield
The wildest of roses grew

Upon the blush of her pretty head
Stained with what men had bled
White petals puckered in brilliant red
The Whitest wild rose glimpsed hell

When the battle scene lie deaf
And not a soul to love was left
Moonlight filled the tears she wept
And the Rose pitied the man

Winter came, life kissed death
With the sweep of a snowy breath
Pale hands of the woman Macbeth
Washed White to red to grey

Well summer come and summer go
No eye that lays upon her knows
Her blushing color is to show
How red is to remember

The Color of Love and Death

Crimson was the blush, coloring my heated cheeks when tempted by the suggestive words he speaks A crimson bouquet of budded roses I carried on the day we said our vows; the day we married. In a pool of crimson blood I awaited my death, calling his name until I gasped for my last breath. 7/25/2016 Crimson Contest-Royal Ninja

Black Heart

Death and
the dreadful
dark side,
Ghouls, witchcraft
and sly Raven,
all the
tints, tone,
and mixed shades;

Our Death

Neptune will cry for our death 
Fragments of sea blood 
Temblor of regards 
Condolences from Poseidon 
Exhaling ciaos, inhaling mists 
And all else Jupiter, once more 
All yellow bleeds fire 
None could inhume his dolour 
Grams of sorrow, forcely collected 
Twining clouds and forming seas 
Autarkic trumpets would sing  
As colors received by Uranus

Monochrome Girl

Silence and noise
Daybreak and twilight
Monochrome girl
In black and white.

Each day living
In a world with no
Colour or life
Or glimmer or glow.

Both colours
Meaningless as the other
White a nuisance
Black a mere bother.

Soles thudding on ground
Running away
From the fears that haunted
Her both night and day.

A gasp of pain
Sharp shoots of dread
Monochrome girl
Now splattered with red.

Blue Bird

You greet me with a happy chirp when I walk into the room. 

I see your head turn and you puff up. 

You're such a pretty bird. 

When I stick my hand into the cage, you fly and land on the right side of the cage. 

Then I extend my finger as I reach farther into the cage. 

That's when you jump onto my hand. 

You chirp and I call you pretty bird. 

I motion for you to hop off my hand. 

Blue bird, you are a really good friend. 

Such a pretty bird...
