COLORS (POEM)

My Recent Posts

 

Red was my feeling

back when she left

she stole my soul

thought that was a theft.

 

Yellow my pie

I tried to eat

but sadly could not

continued to cry.

 

Orange, you see

don't know really why

I did use to like it

newspapers maybe...

 

Black's not a color

it's rather my wife

and that's why I love it

she entered my life.

 

White's what I am

in fact, not like milk

and also no blanket

but color's a scam...

 

Green is the grass

and lots other things

reminds me of nature

and what it us brings.

 

Blue is my favorite

not only the sky

brings calm and no limits

I wish I could fly.

 

So all of these colors

have something to say

depends on your feelings

if sad or okay.

Stone, some days bring out the colors.
Maybe a new brush is in order.
And then again ....... maybe not.

That new brush will brush the wrong things aside.

Stone, I admit, you're a pretty good poet auf englisch, lol. Far better than what I would do auf deutsch, lol. I thought about using Google translate for one, but it didn't come out the way I wanted, and besides, native speakers can usually tell immediately if someone is using Google translate, lol.

Good poem Stone, colorful and true.
Unlike the unlyrical ones, that just leave me blue.

I also don't like poems without rhymes very much. It's kind of no work...but maybe I'm just old-fashioned...

This one has good imagery, I liked it alot because I like color and it gives you insight.
Just another note, you write poetry well.

I learnt it on WB in fact....due to the fact that I've been writing in English here for the last 4 years ;)

Very colorful!

Thanks guys. I love colors since we don't have too many of them here in Switzerland, where the sky is mostly grey. Another reason to quit - if only to see a full moon now and then when the sky is clear - over Africa.
