Premium Member Problematic Pink
crashes in
like waves
tossing and

all senses 
words begin 

engulfed in
a hue
she can't think

move or

in the pink

The Beautiful Color Blue
The beautiful color blue
And most people have no clue,
How beautiful it really is,
For they don’t look deep within.
It is very pretty,
And it is such a pity
How much beauty people ignore and waste
In their daily quick-move...

One red candle
burning in a lonely heart
powered by hope...

Premium Member Hot Like a Firecracker
Hot like a Firecracker, Red Dances her Truth
Red is a savage, 
Takes no prisoners
For she wants for nothing

Red is complete 
Onto herself
A pirate-faerie-gypsy-queen

Red is hot like a firecracker
Red dances her truth
Stopping at stop signs
Only to...

Premium Member Cotton Ball Fluffy
Pure cotton ball fluffy
Most popular tissue, end of a q-tip
Fresh clean virginal snow
Bathrooms and bathtubs
Twinkles in the cosmos
White all around me

Lacy white collars
Lacy white anklets
Lacy white petticoats
Lacy white pantaloons
Lacy white old people
White all around me

Premium Member Bright are her Daffodils
Bright is her yellow head
Splendiferically glowing and glittering
Bright are her daffodills, tulips, and marigolds
Yellow is her scrumptilliousatic go-to place
The lightness, the brightness, the terrific fly-a-kite-ness!

Dandelions, sunlight, honey bee hive color.
Yellow is so scrumptilliousatic 
It makes...

In A Cerulean Garden
A sapphire spark
and alchemical light
floods my brain;
indigo wings fluttering
among the irises
draw faeries from their lair;
they flit throughout
the garden,
stirring turquoise
nectar...bee treats.

Cobalt rust
explodes from a tiny bud;
ultramarine poppies, 
with blue-hued 
fanned flames,
dance in the 
azure light.

light-flare of...

Premium Member I am not Sophisticated Enough to Wear Black
I am not sophisticated enough to wear black
Sure I can look at it from a distance
I can put tiny touches of it in my art
But I am not sleek or classy or elegant
Black is that

Premium Member Glowing Gleaming Orange
Fire sparks, dragon scales, Lucy's hair
If I were limited to seeing and wearing one color
it would be orange

Bright vivid neon orange in paisleys or polka dots
Not the orange of tabbies, but the glowing gleaming orange

Balancing my needs and wants
As I get older my needs and wants, 
Seem more of a match,
And no longer compete for my attention.

Going without no longer a big deal,
Small thing make me happy,
And being first in line I can...

Autumn leaves
As Autumn leaves
Fleeing before the frost
It hides itself in mounds
Earth-bound summer splendor
Now spent, waiting for the insects to nest
A brief moment of color
A last hurrah, as Autumn leaves
In golden hues and red as blood
The veins...

Premium Member Women who Trade Colors for Tan
Women run into stores and buy up all the tan crap, oohing and ahhing.
Thinking how wonderful it is going to be in their beige houses 
with their brown trim.

Premium Member Just Call me Blue
He tried other names
But none fit him like this
Green was too fresh
Orange, although wild like him, seemed paisley
White was whimpish
And he knew he needed a color name
He went by Pink for a day
Until his uncle...

Premium Member Red Is So Important
Fire hydrants, fire trucks and firemen's faces
After they have been heated up
Chocolate heart boxes, and the prettiest roses
Some of the most fragrant tulips

Ruby jewelry, all sparkly and haughty
My favorite boots, my checkered shirt, my brick...

The Miraculous
Enveloped in luxuriant
life giving verdigris;
I breathe in the light;
exhale the darkness.

Cellular metamorphosis;
fusion of spirit essence;
concession to chrysalis

Miraculous visitation,
persistent progression,
a celestial procession;
towards renewal...

concatenation luring elation;
blissful appreciation
for Raphael’s gift...
I succumb to
supernal rejuvenation.
