There was this poem I heard that described nostalgia as a thin indigo veil, it was a Spanish poem so I'm not sure if I put this right in English. So is it okay to say Nostalgia is a thin indigo veil?? or should I say Nostalgia is a thin veil of indigo color ???

    I would worry that the colour or dyestuff indigo might not have the same connotations in English as in the source language. In fact, the colour indigo has no poetic resonance for me at all.
