marine life in iowa

i painted our basement
a lucious “oyster shoal”
such neutral hue embued
between cloud and coal
idyllic muted color match
to old grey mare’s fair foal
if i fall into a swoon, know
the fumes have taken toll
as paint chip covers wall
in opalescent oyster shoal!

Inspired by Sarah’s “colours” prompt at dVerse which fit with my latest home project.

    The rhythm and rhyme scheme are great here – they give a poem that just lifts off the page. I can picture the colour – hope the DIY is going well!
