i like my sky cerulean
my clouds in platinum.
the earth beneath my
feet in russet tones,
the grass viridian.
and at the shore i like my
sea to foam in azure mist,
the warm soft sand
between my toes a pale
papaya whip. the lemon
chiffon sun at dawn is loveliest
in tangerine. at dusk an amber
glow at the horizon’s edge
is quite serene a scene.
when storm clouds come as
they oft’ do, i fancy them
in purple taupe, the lightning
flashes ghost white underneath
a mint cream moon. the night
sky phthalo-black, a backdrop
for the splashed white stars…
give me a box of crayons,
i’ll be quite content for hours!
