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

Yes I agree with the Cucumber. I also think this would be great in children's literature. I think this is the type of work that would sell. Thanks for sharing.

This was a beautiful poem! The way that you used the imagery, and the font colors, made me imagine a person coloring a piece of paper with crayons. Well done!
