orange

Carpe Diem Theme Week #2 Color Your Life -- Orange


Orange: 

Orange is a very strong color associated with creative energy. Nature grows through the sun (orange?) and therefore I think we will all have a slight reference towards orange as being the color of creativity. We have to cherish that energy, because we need it to create our haiku, tanka or other Japanese poetry forms.

Orange combines red and yellow. It contains the fiery energy of red with the wisdom and control of yellow. Orange is a dynamic energy like red but more thoughtful and controlled.

Orange brings about: creativity; playfulness; exploration on a practical level; relief from boredom and equilibrium.
