Abstract: 
An effective element that makes Mahmoud Darvish poetry beautiful is the imagination that rises from the use of colors. He uses color in symbolic, allusive and metaphoric forms.
In his poetry, green depicts hope, freedom seeking, life & motion and love for resistant Palestinians. White stands for peace& quietude in freedom. It sometimes means non-existence and mortality. Blue is often taken as calmness, eternity, wisdom and infinity. Red is the symbol of martyrdom, courage, sacrifice and dedication in pursuit of freedom. Black is the color of despotism, oppression, colonialism and chains of captivity. Brunet is the color of Palestinian identification and its grain farms.
All these colors have been creatively employed in his resistance poetry.
