Color Changes

Written for:  Poetic Bloomings2 – InForm Poet – “Huitan”

“The huitain is an off-shoot of the ballade. It is a French form in its nature and in fact, it is an 8-line poem in its totality, composed of one ballade stanza.

Here are the Huitain particulars:

It is composed in an 8-line stanza.

It has an ababbcbc rhyme scheme.

There are usually 8 to 10 syllables per line.

Any subject.”

Imagine yourself new color each day.
You’ve rested well, today you are peach.
If the night tossed you about, you are gray.
Enjoyed a long day at the beach?
you are bronze, lazy, under the sheet.
If a blue moon turns you indigo,
but next night a fiery sunset streaks
‘cross the sky, you could turn a nice Merlot.

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.
