    Question An important color!

    Black is a wonderful color in the eyes attracting you while their pupils are getting bigger and you see yourself in those both mirrors. Black hair reminds you of raven's wings wrapping her chicks. Black can spread over someone's skin and cried for losing rights all over the world in order to believe that blacks have equal right as whites, reds and yellows. If black didn't exist, you wouldn't find calm and peace in so-called nights. and you wouldn't see the black lids gradually covering your eyes. In short, black for some brides and people who consider their nightdresses significant, plays an important role. If there were not black, white couldn't appear and vice versa!

    Hi, Gil
    Many thanks for your editing.

    {I doubt that black eyes are normal. In the U.S. a black eye occurs when someone has been hit in the area of the eye causing a bruise which is blackish in color. Eye colors can range from the most common color, brown, to the least common, green. Rare genetic mutations can even lead to unusual eye colors: black, red, or the appearance of violet. Scientifically, yes you are right. But I consider black literary. and "the puplis" scientifically get bigger while exciting.

    Black hair reminds you of raven's wings wrapping her chicks.
    {Nicely written}

    Black can spread over someone's skin and cried for losing rights all over the world in order to believe that blacks have equal right as whites, reds and yellows.
    {I have no idea what this means}Sorry, I couldn't convey my meaning correctly; I mean there is no difference between black people and any other people in their rights.

    If black didn't exist, you wouldn't find calm and peace in so-called nights.
    {Why so-called nights? It’s either night or it’s not night}Allright! night

    and you wouldn't see the black lids gradually covering your eyes.
    {“And” needs to be capitalized since it is the beginning of a sentence. I assume that the “black lids covering your eyes” is a reference to death – is that right?}I mean sleeping- gradually sleeping.

    In short, black for some brides and people who consider their nightdresses significant, plays an important role.
    {Might be written – In short, black plays an important role for some brides and other people who consider their nightdresses significant}Thank you!

    If there were not black, white couldn't appear and vice versa!
    {I doubt that this is true. Black is the absence of light. White, or other colors, could occur without black being present. You might be writing about black being seen as evil and white been seen as good. In that case, you are saying that if there is no evil in the world, then there is no good in the world – one requires the other}Difference in people's shape



    P.S.

    I guess you could refer to a color as important, but I would pick a different adjective. (I guess if you can say it's significant you can say it's important.)

    Taghavi, there is a lot of imagery in your writing. Sometimes it perplexes. It does make me think, though. (Maybe that is a good thing.)

    Would you please clarify to me? What's difference between "significant" and "important"? Is that too awkward for me to use a lot of imagery?

    Some colours are far more important and significant than others. These are the colours that are used more commonly to signify.
    Red, for example, signifies things like "stop!". It is used for fire engines, fire hydrants, post boxes ....
    Blue is the colour of sky; yellow of the sun, green of grass,
    This colour is not so important. It does not have the import of red. Maybe these colours signify in the military.
    This one, I think, could be dispensed with altogether and no one would even notice!
    And they are just the ones in this palette.

    Yes, Those three original colors, red, yellow and blue, create all other important colors from black through white.


    And a proverb about the importance of "black";

    "Black will take no other hue"

    post boxes in Iran are yellow but our sky is blue too.

    The two words mean pretty much the same thing. That's why I say if you can use one you can use the other.

    I wouldn't say imagery is awkward, but if the reader or listener doesn't understand the imagery he is unlikely to understand the poem.
