CRAYONS

CRAYONS

A Poem by Dani California

 

 

 

I picked up a crayon

And scribbled a bit

This blank piece of paper

Had new purpose to it 

 

I picked up another

And scribbled some more 

Its meaning grew deeper 

So the more I explored  

 

I continued through the box

Picking one crayon at a time

Then adding more color

To this masterpiece of mine

 

A pinch of blue

A dabble of green

I litte bit of red

Every color was seen

 

Each and every color

Gently blended and entwined

Painted the color of love

On the hearts

 

Of mankind

This is so sweet. I can imagine a child coloring at the table with me. We are creating a picture, together, with similar hearts...

Well done!

I love this poem!! You wrote "CRAYONS" so well, and in a beautiful array of colors, thereby intensifying in my mind how we are all different colors that can blend in with each other, so easily, that we don't really notice, we just are. Friendship and Love entermingling with all. An Absolutely Beautiful Insight into the very Heart of Mankind... Thank you..
