TITLE: Colors of Creation
By Deborah Caruso


A fictional story about color
Earth was about to take shape as the colors swirled around the Creator’s throne. They had all been summoned to participate in the beginning, and to play their parts in Creation. Red, Yellow and Blue were beside themselves waiting for their orders in the grand scheme of things. It had been rumored amongst the Angels that they would have primary roles in Earth’s design. The first day, they observed as the Creator spoke Light on the scene, and they all clapped their hands at the glorious sight of Light. They watched as Day and Night appeared before them.

The colors were called forth. As God spoke the Heavens into being, the atmosphere was filled with Blue’s glory, and the color was proud that it had been chosen for such a prominent position. The third day, when God formed the Seas, Blue reflected in them as well. Blue was thrilled when it was mixed with Yellow to make Green and cover the Earth’s Grass and Fruit Trees.

Yellow was used alone to cover the little flowers like Dandelions, and Red was used to dress up fruits like Apples that hung down on the branches of Green. Blue felt even more important until the forth day when something else appeared in the heavens, that had the same color as the lowly Dandelion, it was the Sun, and it would be the ruler of day. The Moon and Stars were also born on the very same day.

On the fifth day, God began mixing Blue, Green and Red to fill the newly founded Seas and the Air with colorful creatures. He made creatures like Turtles, Starfish, Sea Stars, Coral Reefs, Pelicans, Finches, Robins, and Parrots.

By the sixth day He filled the Earth with its own colorful Beasts and with Cattle too. Then He did an amazing thing, He made Man after His own image, and a Woman from the man. Red was very fulfilled that it would be the color of Blood and would flow through the veins of all of God’s living creatures.

By the time the Heavens and the Earth were finished, Blue, Green and Red were amazed that when they worked together, there were endless possibilities, and that no color was more important than the other.

It was thousand’s of years after Creation, that colors were being looked upon by a girl by the name of Mathilde. She was walking in a Green meadow filled with little Dandelions. Mathilde had been born lame, and none of the other children wanted to play with her. They didn’t want to play with her because she couldn’t keep up with them. As she reached down to pick one of the little Dandelions, the agony of heart was revealed, she felt just as small as the tiny daisy in the big field of green in the eyes of her peers.

The Colors remembered when they first saw one of God’s little Dandelions, and how they felt about Yellow’s role in the grand scheme of things until Sun came on the scene. They were sad that the others were overlooking Mathilde, but they knew Creator God would never overlook her, and He had big plans for her life.
