The Colors of Paradise

I wonder what colors would be in Jannah…

Same yet so different
the blue of the sky
the blue of the water
and that of my shoes

Different is the blue of sapphire,
I wish to buy
unlike the blue eye-liner,
my sister loves

Neither same the blue of frock,
I am wearing
Nor that of blue lenses,
I once bought

Other is the blue of my favourite scarf
distinct from the berries blue

Particular blue my school uniform used to be
peculiar is the blue of husband’s shirt too

Same yet so different
The blue from blue

I just wonder what colours would be in Jannah then
when Prophet* said for them “I do not know what they were”

Yellow, orange, violet, red
colours of this life
indigo, blue & green

I just wonder what colours would be in Jannah then

colors of paradise
What blue would be the sky blue
and what shade the sea green

But what ‘blue’?
and what ‘green’?

When He promised a Jannah
in shades, no eye has ever seen

Sisterly Yours ❤️
The Might of Pen

[*Peace be upon Prophet Muhammad]
