COLOURS
Of all the colours enhancing
Sky seems most embracing
Not even the emerald sparkles
Of great ocean largess
Can outdo her enchantment

Blue denims parched and faded
I'll listen to the blues
When i'm feeling low down sad

The mountains loom larger after
The tantrum of rainy days
And tiny flowers in dots brighten
The Savannah variously hued

Green leaves
And blades of grasses
Lucky charms
In four leaf clovers

Sunset extends burnished at last
Tired is day and happy is night
Stardust will sprinkle wishes to sight

Orange marmalade
Sweeten the butter
Oranges and lemons
To morning zest brighten

  1. All exist under the largess of sky and its blues. How lovely these details! I love that sky is allowed tantrums as well as its days and nights.

  7. Blue denims parched and faded
    I'll listen to the blues

    Just as a faded denim when one is down one seeks solace in the blues of old. It has a way of getting things going again! Wonderful lines Gillena!
