Saturated Colours


What saturated colours bring
To any subject you may cite
Is vividness, portrayed in light.

Whenever lively bronze bells ring,
Deep notes roll out and resonate...
Deep colours, too, reverberate.

A cloudy day, far from a curse,
Provides diffusion that's ideal
For colours with profound appeal.

Bright light is almost always worse
If saturation is your aim;
It harshly treats all things the same.

Diffused light is the cream of cream
When colour is your major theme.
If contrast is what you desire,
Then find yourself a blinding fire.
