Each color stands for a Farsi letter. The first and second row of color boxes are the first and second hemistich (mesra') of a famous Persian verse.
The black underlines define word boundries. Two letters are given away as hints. What is the verse?
Note 1: The third row of color boxes is for your monitor (or eyes). If you don't see 19 distinct colors, the puzzle won't work for you.
Note 2: You actually "see" more than 19 colors in the verse rows. This is an illusion, as the perception of color in each box is affected by the color of the adjacent boxes. I have separated the boxes enough so the effect is not too severe, but it can't be entirely eliminated. Which letter is most affected by this illusion?
Note 3: If you start going blind, stop!

MPD, some cluesby Ari Siletz on Fri Jun 17, 2011 08:39 PM PDT
Color # 2(counting from your left to right on the third row of color boxes) is "vav."
Color #9 (darkest green) is "dal." The verse is by Hafez.
Let me know if you need more clues.
