I want to thank Jingle because she has given me this award to decorate my blog even more…. She is indeed a very good friend and a gem to have. I am posting this poem today. I wrote this about a week ago. I know this should have been posted right away, but I wanted to wait until I did not have any personal issues anymore. Today just seems to be the perfect time to post this. I hope this satisfies you all, my talented friends. It’s a free verse, so there’s really no formal count or anything. wink
Paint Your Palette
If you were a color, what would you be?
Which color would show what you mean to me?
I could say that you’re the color yellow,
A bright sunshine with a golden halo.
A color that brightens up my whole sky,
Like the sun, with each day that passes by.
Yet you are the orange of a sunset,
Like what happens when we hit the reset.
You represent the end of one long day
And promise a new one is on its way.
I could say you are red, burning with fire,
Full of passion, of love, or even ire.
You burn me with a heat that’s so intense
There’s not much any room left for pretense.
You are the color of life; you are green.
All things are better than they’ve ever been.
You have breathed life into my lifeless soul;
You have made all parts of me become whole.
You are like the Earth; you;re my only home.
When I am with you, there’s no need to roam.
You are blue as the seas and oceans are,
As blue as the sky I see from afar.
Like an oasis in the desert lands,
You quench those who thirst and soothe their rough hands.
You are the rainbow that complete my sky;
I know I shall but love you by and by.
The colors that you bring my whole life through,
They are yellow, orange, red, green, and blue.
