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

yes this is nice ,as i see it ,writing adds a color with each word you say until at the end with so many words there is a great writing imaging a very nice cored peace of imagination ,with the words or the color blending so nicely to put out a great piece as if you have just finished a painting rather than a drawing ,very nice ly done

Colors are used by the painter to, write, their vision.
Words are used by the poet to, paint, theirs.

You used both, to create your's.

Well done!

A work that evokes inspiration. Unfortunately I a bit too much of a pessimist to agree with the feeling of hope and share the vision you present.

your connotation of harmony is splendid...your use of crayons to portray your thoughts ingenious...the visual image and the message you convey is simply awesome.

I like this, I like this a lot...flows very nicely.

your colorful array of words gives your poem strength

VERY WELL THOUGHT OUT AND WRITTEN...

This is a very nice poem! I'm still smiling from reading it. : ) I really like the analogy you made with crayons and colors. It seemed to me that each color was a quality you were adding to your picture of a perfect world. At first, I did think it was just a fun little poem about crayons, but the last stanza added more depth to it. The rhyme-rhythm pattern was great and the font choices definitely added to this piece. Thank you for sharing!

The use of the colored crayons is
so incredibly effective, flowed smashingly
to a great ending...

Every color was seen

Each and every color

Gently blended and entwined

Painted the color of love

On the hearts



Of mankind'

beautiful work of art
with the crayons and coloring
of each color is brilliant!

Awesome work of art, hun!
