Paint Color Poems

Written for:  Imaginary Gardens With Real Toads – Artistic Interpretations
with Margaret – Color it . . .
“The challenge is to use 5 names from the “fan decks” below and write a new poem. The paint chips are randomly selected by me but please click on the names if you want to see the colors not represented with a square of color. (I have linked every name below a color square to an internet link)”

Fresh Forsythia

Fresh Forsythia, Maize Valley, Spring Nectar

Sit with me
in the maize
of fresh forsythia,
and we will drink
Spring’s nectar.

behind blue eyes

Behind Blue Eyes, Tranquil Vibe, Moonlit Path

Behind your pale
blue eyes, I sense
a tranquil vibe.
I have been searching
for this serenity,
and now, here you are.
We can stroll the night
away on a moonlit path.


Amethystina, Violet Obsession, Serenade, Maison Bleu

Under an amethyst sky
I wait for your serenade
to soothe my violet

rapture blue

Blue Nile, Right as Rain, September Skies, Rapture Blue

Enraptured , I gaze
at a blue nile ocean
to welcome September

fresh cut

Green Stem, Parisian Green, Mangrove, Fresh Cut

in the mangrove
Parisian green from afar
fresh cut green stems

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.
