Mother of Pearl

Mother of Pearl

A mother of pearl sky
Overtones for the day’s finale
Coral colored horizon
burns into the sea
as the elusive green light
flashes farewell
to a surreal sunset  

Fragrance of coconut
Floats on the evening air
Fading footprints
in the exsiccated sand
are taken back
by the gentle flow
of evening tide

Blue and yellow sails
fly on a lone schooner 
still visible in the diminishing light
In the silence
a feeling of peace
descends on a tranquil scene
akin to paradise

Chakra Colors – Poem of the Month – August 2021

Chakra Colors

The colors of earth speak to me
In tones of vermilion, red ochre and umber
My root grounds me
I am centered

Amber and burnt orange 
Remind me I am creative and joyful

And shades of Goldenrod and citrine
Reveal the power within me

Verdant forest greens and
Semi-precious malachite
Tell me I am worthy of love

The hues of the sky
help me speak my truth

and Lapis Lazuli hones my intuition 
so my third eye sees clearly

Amethyst the color of twilight
Representing my higher consciousness 
Balances my body and soul
I am at one with the universe

Ingrid from Experiments in Fiction is hosting D'Verse Poets tonight
and she has prompted us with the muses.  We may either use one of the
poetic muses or choose our own muse or whatever inspires us to write poetry

In Gratitude

In Gratitude

I watch from my window
as the night begins to steal the day
pushing the smashed pumpkin sun
lower and lower into its fiery furnace

The sky glorious in majestic purple
sewn with golden threads 
My heart is full at this sight
Taking my breath with its beauty

It is in these chance moments that I am grateful
for the gifts that come to me each day
I am inspired by the colors of nature’s wheel
Matching my body’s chakras
Grounding and balancing me

I live in gratitude for this day
as the night claims it birthright

Color Me Hot

Color Me Hot

Erotic blue lust
sparks white-hot
volts of tingling
silver thoughts
into the mind
of sexual fantasy
Climbing fiery
red heights
of painted passion
Exploding mosaics
coloring me in
a thousand different
pieces of rainbow
sensations   
Falling aimlessly 
into aquamarine
pools of tranquility
Cooling jets
Until
mellow-yellow
my mood

Grace is hosting D'Verse poets tonight and has
prompted us as follows:

The writing challenge: Today we will write about color from the perspective of a synesthete. Pick one color or several colors. Create your own Dictionary of Color. All sounds have color. The alphabet has color. Days of the week have color. Each day has a color and a certain shape.

Word Prompt

Paint– RDP

Opalescent

Opalescent

Craggy rocks
veiled with
gauzy mist
Morning air
chilling in
it’s mystery
Dramatic colors
unfolding
with the hours
passing
Greys turning
to blues
as the sun rises
with it’s warmth
Changing the 
landscape 
in its ever-moving
cycle of light
following dark

Kaleidoscope

Kaleidoscope

The bruised sky
patterned with purple
and blue
slowly fading
into golden ochres
signaling an
end to darkness
 
With the new dawn
a brightness and
healing
Erasing night’s
shadows
as day 
becomes starless
 
Panoramic
spectacle of
pigments and hues
An ethereal display 
of ever-changing
evocative colors
Impossible to harness

Skyscape

Skyscape

The sky awash
with hues of cerulean,
turquoise and indigo
Reflecting my
ever changing moods
Bright and expectant
falling silent
with deep thoughts
Followed by stillness
as the blues turn darker
Subtle changes
in colors
Collaborating
Sweeping the expanse
Carrying my musings
to another dimension
