March’s Marquee

Yellow and White Crocus blooming

“Coming soon” the signs say

Bits of color speak loud and clear

As I walk the dreary way

Coming soon” the signs say

Birds sing of a brighter day

Spring color will soon be here

“Coming soon” the signs say

Bits of color speak loud and clear

My Red Camellia plant in bloom 1-27-2020

The sun sleeps.

Rain drizzles upon

Decaying leaves.

Misty morn.

In the bleakness, a patch of red.

Camellia blooms.

Shadorma

My Camellia plant offers a bright spot of color on this dreary January day.

FLOWERS

Flowers erase frowns and

Lift spirits.

On days when the

World seems colorless and

Everything is dreary, flowers

Remind us to

Stop, smile, and seek beauty everywhere

NaPoWriMo 2013, #28–Color Choice

Red is favored many a time ,
But how can I choose it over lime?
And orange, I really like a lot,
But purple’s great too, is it not?
Yellow is so bright and cheery,
Pink delights when I’m feeling dreary,
Blue calms me with it’s gentle hue,
Yet a light shade of green does that too!
The glitter of gold I love to see,
But the shine of silver is also special to me.
Black has it’s place, as does brown,
How can I possibly choose a color to crown?
Picking a favorite is to hard for me,
For I like them all, as you can see.
Therefore, the choice I’ll leave undone,
For there’s just too many colors to focus on one.
