Bridge of Intrigue

“Today I am making it simple. I’m providing the images for inspiration and you my dear poet friends will write the color. Choose one or more of the images and bring at least two colors into your poem. You have complete charge over poetic style.”

A bit of intrigue–
who would leave
these eye-popping
balloons, yellow
as new born chicks,
emerald as the jewel
itself, and pale pink
as petals of a blushing
rose–out on a dreary bridge
recently slated to be
torn down. A colorful
bit of intrigue on
a gray day.

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.

    yellow as new born chicks… a homage to an old bridge – it is a nice thought. Maybe someone got engaged there… I like you leaving the answer open ended.
