Great job this week, poets! 🥳
I don’t know about anyone else, but I enjoyed the challenge of choosing a chakra color to write about. When you use color in your poetry, it helps others connect emotionally to your poem.
When we employ the psychology of color, our symbolism deepens in meaning. For example, I used the color blue, which can also allude to one being sad or morose. However, when we employ the chakra color theory to our symbolism, we learn the color blue is associated with “heaven, or pure mind.”
Jules chose the green (heart chakra). She used the color in specific ways. Kaeru (the frog) is green, and she wrote about love in her haibun. Notice how the symbolism in her poem deepened the meaning. Those connections to the heart chakra came through loud and clear. Usually, the color green implies jealousy, but not when we use chakra color theory.
Don’t be afraid to experiment with color theory in your poetry and other writings: https://www.verywellmind.com/color-psychology-2795824
See you tomorrow for the new challenge!
