My Colours

When I search for blue
Which blue should I use
Is my blue a violet
Or is my blue a blue

When I need a sunset
Of orange and yellow hues
To describe a moment
Making words a view

Today my red is velvet
Yesterday a rose
On lips red is passion
And without words they propose

The sky has expressions
Shades of grays and blues
Sometimes it shows its rainbow
A splinder of its colorful use

Green gives birth to many colours
Innumerable flowers and fruit
They smell and taste delicious
With sented petals and flavorful roots

Colours tell us something
Words can never supply
Colours measure sweetness
And colours measure life

In the winter is snow
Made of purest white
In the midnight hour
Black is the darkest night

When we want attention
We make our colours bright
To mirror images in our minds
And gives the readers sight

Exotic and erotic names
Doesn't fit my fancy
But there are those that tightly hold
Strong colours in their fantasies

When red is mauve and purple fuchsia
And whites confused with peril
Seems like colours were once all men
But now some colours are girls

    Cont. The train was filling with Cardinal fans as we passed the stadium. I had given her my number and soup address that she stuffed in her bra. Then the train was packed like sardines.and i looked over just as she was getting sick. It was clear and sticky and started to smell. I started to look for napkins but only had a bus route map. Which I gave her as the train pulled into the next stop. It was then that I bailed. I've never had to abandon ship before.. but now I know how it feels.

    that woman hurling must've done wonders for your poetical inspiration, I've composed many poems in my head on public transport but never in that 'situation'

    I laughed about it all day today. She's probably forgotten forgotten the whole thing. I'll remember it forever. But it will go down as one of my best poetry stories. Of when I was meeting a woman.

    The story behind the piece. Starts as scribbling from an intoxicating nite. The next day I saw some salvagable lines and went to work. I wrote for two day's sometimes one line at a time. But as I crossedthe mMississippi on the train I wrote the last line. It was perfect. I got off the train and this woman was there ad if sent by heaven to listen to my poem. I read it she loved it. I could smell wine on her breath as she asked for my name and number. We got on the next train together. Cont.
