 What if the blue colour was erased from our world of colours? The world would be unimaginable! We attribute the blue colour to many aspects of our colourful world like the ‘blue sky’, ‘blue waters’, ‘blue bells’, ‘blue berries’, and what not. The various shades of blue signify various attributes of our life. The darker shades of blue signify trust, dignity, intelligence and authority. The lighter shades symbolize peace, serenity and spirituality. The shades intermediate between the darker and lighter blue signify coolness, strength and cleanliness. Life is colourful and I feel blue gives life to our world. The blue colour flows everywhere, even in our dreams and imaginations.

Have you ever wondered the ‘fifty shades’ of blue, sitting in a boat or a beach. It’s the most amazing thing to ever watch. The colour variation is so beautiful that it feels like a bliss to enjoy the view. Contemplating on these fifty shades of blue, I feel each shade corresponds to our emotions. In fact, even our planet Earth is regarded as the ‘blue planet’, as seen from the outer space. Blue colour also signifies the beginning of a new life. It is one of the colours of the rainbow making it vibrant and colourful.

An unknown poet on the net says:

 “Colourless and yet so colourful.

Such depth you hold, boldly you stand out. You reside in the skies and the deep seas, without you they seize to exist.
Such royalty you are, you linger peace and serenity visible within a cobalt glass. Indigo plants spit you out on the wings of lycaenidae and let them stand out with such radiance feeling so blue, how you strike me with calmness.
You bring life to the lifeless.
Without you there is darkness.
Blue you give me life.”

This description brings out joy in our hearts describing the inner beauty and meaning that the blue colour adds to our world.

 如果藍色從色彩中消失,世界將會變成什麽面目?這是不可想像的。我們用「藍色」描述這個多彩世界的方方面面:「藍天」、「藍海」、「藍鈴花」、「藍莓」等等。不同深淺的藍色在我們生命中有著不同的意蘊象徵。深藍色象徵著信任、尊嚴、智慧和權威;淺藍色代表和平、寧靜和靈性;而處於兩者之間的正藍色則意味著冷靜、力量和潔淨。生命是絢麗多彩的,藍色也賦予這個世界生命力。藍色無處不在,甚至可以潛流在我們的夢境和幻想之中。

在蕩漾的小舟或綿軟的沙灘上,你的目光可曾徜徉在層疊變幻渲染著的藍色之中?不管對誰來說,那都是驚鴻照影來的驚豔一瞥。歆享這藍田生玉的交疊色彩是多麼的悅目娛心!凝望著蔚藍的色彩盛宴,仿佛每一層不同的藍色都與我們的心境息息相關。實際上,就連我們身處的地球也被稱為「藍色星球」。同時,藍色也滿含新生命的意蘊,它讓彩虹變得更加生動和絢爛。

一個不知名的詩人這樣寫道:

「蒼白無色卻又如此豐富多彩,

你所處的地帶如此之深,又何等鮮明。

你存在於天空和大海,沒有你

它們將會杳無蹤跡。

你是何等的尊貴,

將無形的和平與寧靜融在有形的鈷藍色玻璃裏。

靛藍色的植物口吐蓮花,

將你生在那寶藍的蝶翅翩躚,在那裡

你煥發著無上的璀璨光芒。哦,

你那清冽的眸子讓我醉迷。

你讓無命之物化為脫兔,

你結束了那永恆的黑暗,

藍色,我的生命由你贈寄。」

對於藍色為世界增添的深層意蘊和它那無上美麗,如此生動的描摹帶給了我們心靈上的歡愉。
