Fiat Lux

When light comes ashore
it is monochrome waves
which if we could see them
would be coloured liked water
and we'd read the monochrome
message of colours
Borderland Blue
Appletree Green
Luminous Luxor
Obdurate Red
Uniform Gaylord
Rodent Related
Sliddery Shadow
- in 'reality' there are at least two places in the human brain which deal with colour formation - in V1 the signal from the eye is seen first monochrome - this image is then sent to V4 where the colours are 'painted in' before the 'picture' is sent further up the line.
