This week for TankaTuesday Weekly Poetry Challenge No. 263, 3/1/22: #Tastetherainbow-Color Poetry – Colleen Chesebro has challenged us to create a poem using the colour green for our inspiration…
The colour is everywhere and there are around 24 different shades used to describe its presence around us… I have selected a few to share in my Crown Cinquain..
The Colour of Life
blessed with rainfull
called the Emerald Isle
glistening jewel in the ocean
vibrant and strong
all shades of viridis
reflected in its canopy
plump and healthy
pressed for their precious oil
tossed into colourful salads
bringer of good fortune
protects the mind, body, spirit
planted with mint
will attract butterflies
repelling less welcome visits
My latest book is a collection of poetry and was published in July 2021 and here is a recent review.
