Bliss IV

It was really quite hot
but the colour right there
showed me one thing
that the sun had a care
For it with the rain
when that comes gives us this
a garden that’s lovely
for joy and for bliss

Lovely IV

The variegated colour of
our Nasturtiums in full bloom
return year after year
when they first appear in June
They really are quite lovely
and I’m glad they reappear
as their colour in the garden
brings us pleasure, yes and cheer

Tri-Haiku IV (Change)

And as winter comes
I am yellow with summer
Sunshine in my mind

But as summer fades
Yellow changes into blue
Winter takes a hold

And as my palette
paints here a changing picture
the canvas moves on

Converse

I’ve been partial to ‘Chuck Connors’
since I was a lad
And mostly you will find me
with my feet in Converse clad

I have many different colours
Yellow, blue and pink
The oldest ones I had for years
Forty plus I think

I have ones I got on eBay
which I know are very rare
And some which are so vibrant
that folk will stop and stare

I have ones which are so full of holes
I scarce can wear them now
But I’m not about to throw them out
as they’re part of me somehow

I wear Converse in the summer
and in the winter too
And to be honest I prefer them
to a sandle or a shoe

And yes, I have my favourites
Several pairs I’d say
which you will find me wearing
almost every single day

Stars III

Yellow, I see them
and myriad colours more
Jewels in the night sky

The colour of rain

I saw splashes of colour
like rain falling down
A rainstorm of rainbows
to dispel any frown
So I danced as the colour
fell all around me
soaking and soothing
and setting me free

Life is colour

In summer life is colour
yellows, blues and greens
Reflecting all around me
and the palettes I have seen

In summer life is canvas
to paint with words to fit
Reflecting all the colour
as life is full of it

Colour Jumble

Like a jumble of colour
the sunshine of May
make known its existence
as a potter with clay

Expertly crafted
the warmth that it brought
give us the summer
that we had long sought

Poem and prose

And my words with momentum
found pattern and form
on a page full of colour
which for me is the norm

Words from a poet
who has to compose
with syntax and rhythm
for poem and prose

All Colour

I am all things colour
I look for a smile
Especially when
they’re not seen for a while
But it’s easier when
the sunshine comes out
and there’s things like
Spring and Summer about
