One of my favorite songs when I was a girl was Disney's Ludwig von Drake's "Spectrum Song".

Spectrum is one of those big words we can associate with the vast range of so many aspects in life and even life itself. Your poem made me smile. The mysterious atmosphere and the way you played with your words to evoke it, especially with how you used "spectrum", shows your innate talent.
