 If I asked you to think of brown, what do you see? Although brown is a common colour, it is often neglected because it isn’t as fierce as blazing red or as calm as ocean blue. Frankly, how many people say brown is their favourite colour? Nonetheless, brown is present in so many things, it deserves to be noticed now and then. Here is a little something dedicated to the colour brown.

What is brown?

Brown is a common colour, often neglected because:

Brown is a murky colour, like dirty footprints on a rainy day.

Brown is the name of my teacher, who yelled at me in 2nd grade.

Brown is the colour of soil, filled with worms and creepy-crawlies.

Brown is the fur of wild bears, out to scare and ready to hunt.

But Brown also speaks of nature, of morning and fresh bark.

And Brown is the smell of coffee, sweet and soothing after a hard day’s done.

Brown is the taste of chocolate, and brownies, freshly baked.

And Brown is that of my teddy bear, who was so much fun.

 

‘So what is brown?’ You may ask.

My answer is: ‘Brown is the reason that I write this piece today’.

當你想到褐色你會聯想到什麼呢?雖然褐色很常見,它卻往往被忽略,就因為它沒有火紅色的熾烈,也沒有海藍色的平靜。坦白說,究竟會有多少人說褐色是他們最喜愛的顏色呢?儘管如此,褐色頻繁地出現在我們周圍,是值得被我們察覺的。這是我獻給褐色的。

什麼是褐色?

褐色是一種常見的顏色,往往被忽視,因為:
褐色是一個灰暗的色彩,就像在雨天骯髒的腳印。
褐色是我的老師,在二年級大吼我的老師。
褐色是泥土的顏色,充滿了蠕蟲和噁心的昆蟲 。
褐色是野熊的皮毛,出來嚇唬狩獵。

但褐色也意味自然,早晨和新鮮採割的樹膠 。
褐色是咖啡的濃香,甜美既舒緩一天的辛苦。
褐色是巧克力的味道,還有新鮮出爐的布朗尼。
褐色是我的玩具熊,多麼有趣。

「那麼,什麼是褐色?」你問。
我的回答是:「褐色是我今天寫這篇文章的原因。」
