    A brownish, yellowish, dry, warm sand
    That feels like silence no one hears.
    It tumbles, grain-like from your hand,
    A timer marking off your years.

    Saffron

    A thousand saffron straws surround
    This still clearing I have found
    I sit still upon the ground
    And listen to their wafting sound

    Voices come from far away
    So distant in the quiet day.
    I smell the scent of harvest hay
    And watch it gently sway.

    My eyelids open finally
    Touching gazes known closely
    And as I disappear slowly
    A saffron field surrounds me

    Standing here
    The air is clear

    Sun kiss my skin
    Homeward I begin

    Ringing bell
    Fair-


    next: Steel Pink

    Steel Pink


    barney blended with
    pink lemonade -
    steel pink
    against a
    field of dandelions
    laughter
    blue clear skies

    Porpoises dance
    in waves of sea foam green
    giggling secret languages
    enjoying freedom

    A Newsworthy Acrostic


    Back in the depths of time long before Noah was born
    about 1.1 billion years ago in theory
    rock was being laid down in primordial oceans
    by fossils of cyanobacteria lately found
    in Mauritanian basin shale deposits; an
    evolutionary bombshell lately come to life

    Pink, a bright pink from ancient chlorophyll which
    in dilutions of solutions of pulverized rock
    now brought forth for your amusement that you might
    know of the potential for Barbie Pink dinosaurs

    peace

    what
    color is war
    neither black nor white
    nor red I think

    imagine
    a lasting gentle
    peace abides
    and war forgotten

    Blue

    Is the horizon blue?
    No, that isnt his hue.
    But what does it matter?
    All colors are blue.


    Next word: magenta

    magenta
    is a gent of
    a fenta without
    the fizz
    go figure
    it has the mist
    and goes on
    for bliss

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

    Love these Danik 2016 & cacian !

    pink

    pink may be blushing pale
    or hot; dancing, laughing...
    singing - an alluring feminine hue
    :a muted magenta
    cherry blossoms tickled
    - an extended tongue tasting
    fragrant cotton candy -
    cloyingly sweet
