A Brew Of Colour Poem by poppy miller

A Brew Of Colour

Rating: 4.5

Such images dance in splurging hues

On sheets of silken white delight

A million souls in pastel shades

A million souls in blackest night

Cogs that turn in Indian ink

Their atmospheric feelings

Whilst gentle letters of calming shades

Balance out these dealings

The warmth of cadmium yellow

Flashes on a blaze of flaming red

With specks of oyster here and there

Flittering gently overhead

Yet, as oft time follows

Moods that drip in deepest wine

And thunder roars in steel grey thoughts

To change the syrup into brine

Yea, but poets dress in every hue

For you to pluck your coloured mood

Each phrase a semi precious gem

Each shade brewed with aptitude. 

Footnote: The coloured moods of a poet.

Taste to food is as colour to mood; a poet has the words to say As a journeying breeze among autumn leaves is either sad and gay. Thankks Poppy for this taste of colour

dear Poppy, Wow! This is worth a 10! each phrase a semi precious gem. Colour is a vital element in poetry. My brother who is a professional Landscape artist always says I have a good colour sense! But yours is a lot better.
