Thoughts of Color

Written for:  Imaginary Gardens With Real Toads – Bits Of Inspiration ~ Mi Young Lee
Mi Young Lee’s philosophy about her painting is, “The style and techniques I utilize in translating my feelings to images have grown from within myself as a result of my emotional response to my work and my life’s experiences. My paintings are a composite of geometric forms, organic shapes, gestures, and texture, combined in a kaleidoscope of color to create an image of harmony, energy and optimism.”

The challenge for today is to write an original poem inspired by this Mi Young Lee painting.

“We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.”~ Buddha

Sad blue welcomes
red. Black holes
begin to vanish. Spring
green and Autumn gold
grow bolder. As colder
weather rushes in, ocean’s
blue keep us calm.

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
