Hope-Love-Charity on Thanksgiving

“For each new morning with its light,

For rest and shelter of the night,

For health and food, for love and friends,

For everything Thy goodness sends.”

-Ralph Waldo Emerson


Whisper – the color Black



Have you ever reached into a dark closet allowing only your finger tips to locate what you’re trying to find.

Have you every notice how much light is absorb within the dark.

I once asked a friend, “What is it like being blind?”, his reply was,
“I don’t know?” “I have nothing to compare it to.”
My friend was blind since childhood.
Wondering back to those moments when we were young,
 both of us filled with uncertainties, we spoke of our dreams, wishes, and hope.
Our emotions of fears differ, just like the understanding of sight, and the unseen.


Black is the absence of all color, at least for these old eyes it seems to be.
The ritual of walking into light, and the expectancy of darkness is a blessing at times.


Darkness can make a room romantic, allowing lite candles set the mood.

A glow from the horizon enhances the deep shadows changing the feeling to warmth.


Darkness, or the depth of blackness can allow our sense
of impression create a mysterious imagination.


Knowing this!
Do you think?  The eyes, mind, or imagination is what leads us to the
perception of black.  

In nature a black flower is rare, so rare that in true form the actual deep rich color
 may have a low or no visible light (spectrum) when reflected back to the human eye.
According to science the red color may have the longest wavelength
yet it also has the least amount of energy in the visible spectrum.


Black Magic Hollyhock plant is a beautiful deep rich red flowers, yet within seconds
 our brain may give the impression of the color black.
Calla Lily, a deep purple or maroon, still can fool the eye, 
The Chocolate Cosmos and the Black Dahlia,
are enhanced with a deep, deep burgundy or chocolate color.

Like flowers, the color of fruits and vegetables can fool the eye,
also the lack of knowledge and understanding may surprise our views.
The olive is a fruit harvested during its green to purple stage.
The canned black olive we see,
possibly containing ferrous sulfate or other chemicals, turning them black artificially.

 Earth has provided many natural resources living and non-living that are outside the visible light spectrum list,
such as coal, charcoal, soot, graphite, basalt,decompose organic matter, minerals and more. 


The physical color of black is associated with the ideas of powerless to strength,
and is effected by culture understand, spiritual adaptation,
religious comformities and objects of special attention or preference.

In spite the fact that black has no clear message,
it’s a step into the future of unknown.

Forty years have passed since I last seen my friend in person,
yet even in the darkness of black, I can vision him very clearly.

Whisper – the color Orange


As I gaze upon this daily miracle, nature has a way of staging sunsets naturally.

Colorfully the sun-rays beams its final moments,
as it drifts downward passing over the bottom edge of the horizon. 

Suddenly, my emotions deepens as it moves within the closing light.
I then take a deep breath, again attentive for sunrise.

Orange is a spectrum color found between red and yellow.
It is a well balance color, that is mostly seen during sunrise or sunset.
At times the orange has a softness creating a gentle feeling,
this natural manifestation is noticed when the sunlight wave-lengths
are passing through a mixture of dust particles.

Whisper – the color Green

I find Mullein, to be a beautiful herbal plant. The stock on the plant has so many twist and turns. The rosette leaves, stem, and truck is covered with tiny hairs. Mullein has so many things to offer us, including the color green.Mullein Plants

Green, the color of Love.
Green is a mixture of two colors, or a color between blue and yellow in the spectrum, which can be considered the color of balance. Yet when blended with addition colors it takes on a multi set of orders.


  After a snowy cold winter, green can set the emotion of renewal and birth of a new season. Green is one of the earth colors, relaxing, emotionally positive, as-well-as prosperity and wealth.

Green can promote a safe feeling


It can feel so natural, that green can become a background, and allow other plants to be notice.

Green is one of the four primary colors that can affect people’s moods, depending on how we perceive it and how we use it. Yet the color green is so gentle on our eyes, it requires no adjustment from our brain, meaning the color is perceived as restful.
