Colors of the Wind (a poem)

 


Brightly-lit yellow painted on the face of the sun

As I look up, squinting from the powerful light to see it

 

Rich, baby blue plastered as the sky

Pale, white in the freeform clouds

As my eyes trail across the place above my head, looking like its own city of wonder

 

Dark, ruby red sparkling across the cherry tree

As I pluck one from the leaves of life just to get a small taste of its sweetness

 

Rosy pink flowers sprouting up from the ground

Along with violet violets

Making me want to run wild and get lost in a forest of the colorful stems with buds on top

 

And lively green grass acting as the floor

As I do it all on Earth’s playground

Feeling the full effects as it blows against me

As it is…the colors of the wind

I disagree with the review below. The dark doesn't always need to be acknowledged. People that constantly address "the dark" part of life are clearly unhappy with themselves, angry at themselves, depressed, or can't find much to live for. Thankfully, not everyone is like that. :) Good piece man, the lovely things in life can be appreciated. Imagery's great, of course. Makes me want to take the girlfriend out.People that have "lived" know that there are great things in life as well.

Your words capture the many beautiful colors
Of nature the beauty of the canvas
Fill with flowers greens purples
Earth is a colorful beauty and your perfectly chosen
Words have captured all its beauty of colors and nature
Kudos my friend!!

I got a very 'fresh' feeling when reading this poem... like my subconscious began to look forward for the things to come (even more than usual, anyways). Really captured the rainbow on this one, good stuff - and nice Pocahontas reference, haha.
