color me clear claret to drink deep abiding joy

wash me free cerulean to keep fresh vision of purpose

paint me wild violaceous to sense passionate wonder

spray me glowing fuchsia to energize with enthusiasm

shade me warm goldenrod to exude grateful hope

draw me wheaten whey to nurture spirit of others

dye me gently ibis to find beauty in quietness

tint me steely silver to gather strength with age



In response to Abhra Pal’s first (and colorful) poetic prompt on d’Verse…

made me think of Paul Simon’s ’70s song, Kodachrome 🙂

    Wow, just wow! I loved what you did with colors. Coloring oneself different colors to bring out different facets. I agree with the ‘steely silver.’ To that I say AMEN.

    oh nice… that is polychromatic indeed… each color gives a different hue and stands for another shade of emotion… think i’m in need for warm goldenrod right now…smiles
