Color Inventor

Written for:  Imaginary Gardens With Real Toads – Job Title
“So today at the Toads I’m asking you to come up with dream job titles. Be creative and whimsical too, but also tell us a little about the job. What that does the title allows you to take ownership of? How is it fulfilling? Is it a step towards other, bigger things? “

First there was Ben
and Jerry, concocting flavors
that customers would love. Then,
I came on the scene. Braver

colors was my goal. Paints
gleamed on palette awaiting mix.
Inventing hues like Plum-champagne,
Scarlet-blueberry, Lemon Brick.

House painting became the rage,
clothing and shoes street-strutted.
Ben and Jerry’s set the stage
for Blooming Colors, each star-studded.

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.

    Nice colors. Then might there be ice cream flavors to match? Traditional banana splits are my favorite. Three color plus chocolate syrup , whip cream, and bright cherry red color trim might do.


  7. Perfect colors… I like those, but our house is plain old pink.
