The colors are the missing water, its absense filling the scene and making the pastel or chalk graphics possible. It is almost an altar of round shape the spring, so the pun finds its place oddly. But the picture is also mostly about the space that seperates, us as the cropped spectators of a rite, from the mysterious colouring of the absense by the two priestesses.And of course, the colours should explode in such a picture, but I can't say how. (I only hope I've not been a victim of your title )

Fotis

The colors are the missing, absent water,
That spread in billows on the waiting floor
Like undulating petals in the breeze.
Blue priestesses prepare these rites of spring
Bright petals float, they charge the empty spaces
And bring us blessing of the first ablution
Until the waters come

Hat tip:  Photis
