Royal blue sky scattered sapphire clouds On horizon embroidered in navy blue attire Summoned by the onset of marigold sun Emitting amber gold on tuscan yellow fire Where tapestry of fluffy lavender floats Decorating patterns of designs periwinkle Mosaic of colors then spray-paint the water Spreading a layer of golden yellow cover Shimmering gold dust on twilight ripples Abutting brushstrokes of dark blue egyptian I saw you briefly where first time we met On the lonely bridge that extends into bay But as the dark landmass peeked its head And the lifeless vegetation glinted despair The tangerine breeze announced your exit Quivering our aura beneath glittering riffle For you refused to witness impending flame-- Broken vows ablaze in last breath of sunset August 4, 2018 Poem of the day on August 7, 2018 Placed first in standard contest #180 by Brian Strand

This was a well deserved poem of the day. Congratulations, Vijay. Also wanted you to know, I am gonna be gone a few days so I am not ignoring you! It's just a fast trip to Chicago and back for a Memorial service.

No wonder this was POTD. She took the kaleidoscope of colour away with her. Shame.
