The colour of you

The colour of you

A Chapter by Lyn Anderson
"

this is for the colour challenge in the poetry challenge.

"
When I close my eyes

I see it,
the fields
in summer,
and the flecks
in your eyes
an ocean
of you --

the colour I
wore, that
very first time
locked in
your kiss,
swept by
your bliss --

to me,
it will always be,
forever 
meadow,
lush and dew --
the colour
of you.

This is a very lovely poem, interesting narrow structure but well written so that it isn't a stumbler in either flow or pulse. The song was pretty, and matches the theme of this poem rather nicely. Overall, the bouquet of imagery you have painted gives off a nice aroma, not super sweet to wish to gag but sweet enough to sigh with pleasant content and feel happiness towards the couple.

My color (UK translation: colour) is plaid.
Romantic, evocative and with the sultry sensuality of unsullied, simple love.

brain spiraling about flecked eggs..

is in the eyes and the egg- really.

Ok- just wrote Freely Be... at least it's the beginning of the thaw.
Beautifully captured KL. Love the intricate and unforgettable detail those memories bring when thought of, in more than thought.

You are too kind. Sometimes a contest or a prompt can be the best of inspirations.
"to me,
it will always be,
forever
meadow,
lush and dew --
the colour
of you."

...beautifully crafted lines throughout, Kara!
