Poetry Day 27 — Nightwings


The prompt for today is:  What Color Is It?   Select a random noun. When you see an image of this person/place/thing, what color is it? Brainstorm the different ways the color can be described. Write a poem to help us see something in color through your eyes. Use an appropriately sourced and credited image of your chosen noun to illustrate your poem. 

With this, I took one of my paintings and looked at each piece and tried to describe the colors.  Beside it, I added a poetic rendering.

golden veined outlines                               revered skeleton

living frameworks                                       for holding riches

sheets filled with the rainbow                     of God’s palette

light then dark shades of blue                    windows

dotted with the stars                                   to the stars

glowing orange eyes                                  bright knowing

gold and orange antennae                         bright feeling

harvest yellow orb draws                           yearning with each tiny breath

butterflies of the night                                gathering in splendor

deep orange and blue                                midnight’s bloom

moonflower, touched by                             perfumes darkness

white and lined with gold                            reflecting moonlight

many shades of the sky                             a symphony of colors

medium, turquoise, royal                            within one

and one impassive sock monkey               superego be damned!

  2. I especially enjoyed the moonflower touched by perfume’s darkness line here. Evocative and deliciously sensual!
