Into and Out of the Blue, #Paint Chip Poetry

So, here is another paint chip poetry challenge from Linda Kruschke. We were challenged to use 10 out of 15 of these paint chip colors from the picture below in a poem form of our choice. My last and only other time using this prompt, I only had to choose two. This seemed much more challenging, but it can’t be harder than magnetic poetry, can it?

I look in your eyes,

deep pools of blue,

reflecting clear skies

just before the rain,

and suddenly,

out of the blue,

my gray world

has turned technicolor,

and I’m on the

yellow brick road,

lined with sunflowers

and watermelon vines,

soaking in the sunshine;

my universe somersaulted —

a total eclipse.

    1. Thanks, Linda. I guess that’s a good thing. 🙂 It is a little bit like the magnetic poetry idea, picking words that you can make fit together in a good way.
