This Poem is a Rainbow

Written for:  Poetic Bloomings2, Prompt #414 - Color Me Poetic!

"Below is a link to Wikipedia’s list of Crayola crayon color names, both current and retired. Choose one (or several) to add a splash of color to your pretty words. Can’t wait to see the colorful variety that will grace our site this week!"

This poem is a rainbow
that could not 
make up its mind.  Tried  
and Sage, Burnt Orange
and Banana Mania.  This poem
scratched its head, went
to bed, and thought some
more.  It dreamed Asparagus
and Cerulean, Manatee
and Fuchsia.  Nope.  Not
satisfied.  Then, this poem
had an arc of colors pop
into its head.  So instead,
the rainbow became the colors
we now know.  This poem went
home with a Cotton Candy glow.
