Sevenling (rainbow recipe)

Having fun with a new poetic form, sevenling, introduced by De at dVerse!

 

rainbow recipe begins with basic

ingredients of primary colors:

real red, mellow yellow, too blue.

 

measure equal parts;  blend with

fresh rainwater until secondary hues

appear: ore orange, preen green, riot violet.

 

Oh, may i please borrow a smidgeon of simple indigo?

 


This one for cousin Ben, jewelry designer at Simple Indigo 🙂

    Indigo is a weighted colour. Indeed, a bit of it is enough.

    Give me some indigo and never mix too much… Blended always become brown.
