Watercolors – Poem of the Month – March 2021


Silver-grey of early evening sky
shines its light on my still waters
waking me from a reverie
My sparkling diamonds dance
on gently rolling ripples
as buoyant ducks bounce
Twilight swathes me
in its purple cloth
and I wear amethyst gems
Silhouetted birds in black
fly low returning to their nests
as stillness falls in silence
The night brings an indigo blanket
adorned with sequined stars
Reflecting on my mirrored surface
Gently I rock to sleep
in the glow of a silvery moon
rising slowly in the darkness

Mish is hosting D'Verse Poets tonight and has
prompted us to write a poem from the perspective
of a color.

One Night

One Night

Laying under the stars
Until the sun
broke the dawn
Tears gently brushed
away by soft lips
Promises made
without pause
Lovemaking with
kisses to remember
never in question
A night to remember
Dreams to preserve
Memories to recall
And then,
you were gone
