The Violet Light
February and the violet light wakes
And the light suddenly feels very bright.
March and the light is even brighter,
Meaning red and orange is back on my spectrum,
Softening the violet and blue.
April and moving lighter still,
Yellow and green come into their own
But red and orange are starting to fade
As blue and violet get stronger each day.
May and the light is nearly at its brightest.
All the colours of the spectrum seem to dance.
And then comes June with its predominance of blue
Which washes out some of the beautiful colours.
July and we are coming back down in brightness again
But the violet light can be very bright.
August and I start to see red,
The blue starts to fade and the violet light with it.
By September the world is appearing more red,
There’s a shortage of yellow and green.
In October the light has become dimmer
And yellow has reappeared but with a very reddish tinge.
In November there is a burst of blue
As the light is becoming dimmer.
And in December and January the red is back
The light feels heavy, red and orange.
Yellow is in short supply.
And then it is February and the bright violet light wakes . . .
And we start all over again!
