Anna Akhmatova, from “White Flock” (1914)
Colours meme: Black for Protection
(Black is the absorption of all color and the absence of light. Black hides, while white brings to light. We all use black at various times to hide from the world around us in one way or another. Some of us use it to hide our feelings, our fears. In color psychology this color gives protection, it creates a barrier providing comfort while protecting its emotions and feelings, and hiding its vulnerabilities.)
