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

Yay!!!! I love this Dani....it's so nice to see a tender thought of mankind, and using colors to explain a bit, that is very unique. Thank you for the read request. Well done!

I love how you use the tools of a child to paint an image of love for man. From our youths we seek peace in dreams and somewhere along the journey lose sight of whats most important. Tainted by by the media , we are misdirected by a false sense of happiness when the answeres are there in our youthful dreams. The color scheme in this poem adds to the innocence in your message. With your words you bring a message to the table of life for all to eat. The rhyme and flow are excellent . I loved it.

I love how colorful this peice is, both literally and just in general.
It makes me think of how wonderfull art really is, whatever form it may be in. It is the best and most healthy way, in my opinion, to express yourself. It should be a part of all mankind because it brings us together, no matter what color or place you come from. We're all from the same place. The same box. That message is really portrayed in this. It made me feel kinda cheery. :D

This reminds me of the multitudes of man, and what it would be like if everyone could simply coexist as one; under the blanket of love.
The crayon anology was a wonderful touch; Bringing this concept down to a very basic and simple expression that could be understood by the masses.

At least that's what i saw in it.
