Tropical Rain Forest – colour your world

 

My entry for Jennifer’s Color Your World Challenge
The color for today – Tropical Rain Forest.
It’s a lovely deep green color that’s named after…well…rain forests.

(My pictures are from Minnamurra Rainforest in Budderoo National Park, NSW, Australia)

You are dark, she is fair
She is black, he is white
We are brown, they are yellow
Are you brunette or blonde?

We coloured people

With discoloured hearts
And uncoloured ways
Turn more coloured on Holi
And yet less coloured

Because the Festival of Colours
is a great equalizer.
Its c
olourful masks uncolour
our fake crude colours,
and we are no more
rich or poor, big or small
literate-illiterate, light or dark.

Merely simple human beings

living life, enjoying moments.
Just as we are meant to do

Red, White and Blue

Huge Solidarity

Opera House roofed
In blue, white and red hues
Lighted compassion

For two days, the sails of Sydney’s iconic Opera House displayed blue, white and red, the colors of the national flag of France. See more pictures from around the world here.

Crying Jacaranda

Purple blossoms rain
From canopy of branches
A beautiful mess

Sydney streets are commonly lined with Jacaranda trees and in late spring to early summer that it is now, trees display magnificent purple flowers. There are carpets of blue all around and from a distance, the flowers blooming above and the ones fallen below, kind of look synchronized.
But stale fallen flowers soon become a messy risk for pedestrians who have been known to slip on these.
Jacaranda is very much a dream tree of Sydney-siders who kind of measure time with the arrival of flowers on street side Jacaranda trees.
