    colours poetry

    write a poem describing a colour then suggest a new colour
    for the next contestant to write about



    Topaz

    topaz is rose
    to silken bows
    it runs through
    ryes and water maze
    it symbolises happier skies
    under the sun
    topaz has glows
    over the moon
    and further roons


    next Amethyst
    it may never try
    but when it does it sigh
    it is just that
    good
    it fly

    I can't see this lasting very long, but people can get pretty creative, I suppose!



    The seventh chakra,
    Attached to divine
    Said to be colour
    Of amethyst fine

    Sahasrara's wheel turns,
    At the crown of the head
    High consciousness
    Dreams unsaid.


    I was thinking of adding more stanzas, but I think that's fine as is.

    The next colour, is indigo.
    There is no such thing as a moral or an immoral book. Books are well written or badly written. ~Oscar Wilde.

    When I think of indigo
    I don't really know what color that is.
    But we learned it is in the rainbow.
    Though I still don't know what it is.

    Next: Red.

    red

    it's ruby crimson
    crushed berries soupson
    red is firesome
    couleur of passion
    it's sky damson
    holy fancym
    it's ribbon of rouge
    symbol of luge
    kisses of lures
    on lipstick pure
    fashioned
    and passioned
    it's red
    it's roon
    it's tuned
    it's colour of lune
    at midghnit dune


    next: orange

    Orange

    Fire's blushing glow
    a burst of warmth,
    refreshing with the
    taste of summer,
    tingling upon the tongue,
    the scent of a cooling
    breeze, vibrant
    it paints the sky
    at dawns wakening,
    balanced between
    sweetness and tart,
    rousing childhood
    memories,
    a comfort for the promises
    of another day.

    Next: Purple

    Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before. ~ Edgar Allan Poe

    Okk I'll give it a shot...

    Deeper than most, this enigma; ghostly layers and coats
    adepts and fools engulfed, engrossed, rolling coast to coast
    its bass line hums are hymns, beneath the deepest seas
    it does not float yet it drifts, eloped, it edges through the trees

    spiralling and reminiscent, tones, veils and water washed hues
    so far yet so close, like fog, when drawn reveals no hints or clues
    passive, evasive and melancholy, in fun it will find your misery
    surrounding silence, seen then unseen, depth, distant, mystery...

    Next will have to be...
    Serpentine

    surreal watery green
    yellowy to sultry pure
    it shines in radiant plure
    resembling sandy dunes
    jaded and earthy true
    it's diamond with a hue
    forever settling dew


    yellow

    bold and bright, you can't ignore
    far from mellow, couldn't be more
    loves the attention, rest be assured
    even the sun, agrees with the score
    the colour of stars, so seems preferred
    but if you stare, your vision will blur
    high order reserved, bolder than words
    seen in the flowers and feathers of birds
    and from Sol's glory, ironic is this:
    within his bright rays, all colours exist
    without it are none, and how about the twist-
    Cadmium Yellow: derived from cow piss


    hehehhee
    OK, uhmm, Vermilion

    Vermillion skies
    over a China sea,
    a woman in red silk,
    dragons seem to dance
    around her curves,
    the aroma of Jasmine lingering
    on the warm summer air,
    Alchemical potions
    creating dragon's fire,
    a hot sulfuric breath,
    a dash of mercury
    stirred within, a
    pigment of
    molten sunfire
    emerges.

    Next: Cyan

    Cyan Surfing


    For the serious system traveler the cyan waters off
    the tropical beaches of Sol 3 breathtakingly beckon
    But be wary of the indigenous life forms and limit your
    µwave exposure to ⅜ sols or you'll be taken for bacon

    However the best surfing around is found at Sol 7
    where the zealous shred the cyan clouds; ionizing the
    rarefied air, red-shifting the sky from celeste to electric
    blue and back again - as subtle as the dews of heaven

    violet
    in colours
    you're a player
    in flowers you're a marvel
    and in skies you're a strayer

    Emerald moss lining forest path
    Coating birch and elm
    Where leaves glow in moonlight
    After the Summer rain

    A glassy blue before my eyes
    Rose colored glasses crystallize
    My heart sinks into brilliant blue
    What the hell am I gonna do?
    Seeing everything through this azure
    Doesn't have a strong allure
    I love to stay, but I'm passing through
    In ultramarine shades of blue...

    Next: PUCE
    Some of us laugh
    Some of us cry
    Some of us smoke
    Some of us lie
    But it's all just the way
    that we cope with our lives...

    puce
    how you induce
    and fuse
    looking terribly cused
    a sharp element of rouge
    and all is turned to blues



    TURQUOISE
    it may never try
    but when it does it sigh
    it is just that
    good
    it fly
