Color Me ______

Written for:  Creative Blooming #164, “Colour My World”

During your travels today/this week. Listen for colorful words that we all use to spice up our language. Fill your poem with the spectrum of this laguage. It could be a poem about a color, or just some very descriptive adjective that help say things in a bold way.

In perusing lipsticks, I search
high and low for that perfect
shade of pink. Ah, there it is,
titled, “Chatterbox.” Knowing
this hue is not indicative
of my verbal verbosity, I still
hesitate before buying. This
appellation is no worse,
than when I select a satin
nail color, which, sans glasses,
reads as, “Serial Killer.”
Happily, I find it is named,
“Serial Shopper”, also not
a description of me–no really–I swear.
