Cadet Blue

Colour created for the young cadets

As some call it blue, others call it grey

Definitely a colour of the sea

Each new recruit wears the colour

To identify their rank on board ship

Wild Watermelon

#Coloryourworld #cyw #wildwatermelon

Wonderous fruit of passionate pink

Armoured by thick green peel

Tasty at any time – breakfast through to supper

Each slice taken from you bursting with flavour

Rounding on the tastebuds to make them water

Maybe its summertime when you are at your best

Enjoyed under the blue skies of a

Long summers afternoon

Or perhaps its when the chef has diced you up and placed you

Next to the Oranges, Mangoes and Papayas in a fruit salad

Lavender

lavender#coloryourworld #cyw #lavender #nature #poetry

like most flowers, this plant has a most delightful

aroma, which is released when you pass its light

violet stalks.

each stalk contains an individual

note of

delightful fragrance, leading to

every butterfly in the garden

returning to your flowers to gain another sniff

Cerise

Cake with Cerise Roses – Sourced in Bing, Edited by BFK.

Chosen for its vibrant pinks

each rose, beautifully set against white royal icing

red in some ways, more deep pink in others

it’s vibrancy happily cheers “Hello!”

some might say cherries might have been a better decoration, but

everyone agrees – its perfect for a mothers day tea.

Shocking pink

#coloryourworld #cyw #shockingpink

luminosity released this

colour on the world

to highlight a word or two

is brilliant

carnations and roses in this colour

beautiful

but was it fair to plaster it

across soccer and rugby shirts 👚

up and down the land

I prefer to see pink in my strawberry ice cream 🍦

but now it’s everywhere…shocking!

Fuchsia

Fuschia

#Coloryourworld #CYW #Fuschia

For some, they are seen floating in mid air

undercurrents of air gently lifting them up and down

seen amongst the green – they are the ballerinas of the garden

captivating the eye of the gardener and the

heart of the passer by as they perform their routine

it’s a wonder to see in the light of the morning sun

as a host of flowery dances take place – attracting the fauna.

Yellow-Green

#Coloryourworld #CYW #Yellowgreen #Yellow-Green

yellowgreen

Mr Macgregor made a mistake

leaving those plant pots there

for where there was a lush green lawn

now requires a little repair

 

For a bobbled line of circular kind

can be seen each side of the path

it looks like the Macgregor’s lawn

faced Mother – Nature’s wrath

 

So circles round, they decorate

down the garden from house to gate

in a shade of yellow – green

(a colour the Macgregors aren’t that keen)

 

But certain plants they like that shade

and vibrant colours they’ll parade

Next to the yellow-greenish border

where everything to them is nice and in order

Unmellow

unmellow

#Coloryourworld #cyw #Unmellowyellow

Hardly the mellowest flower in the garden

your bright colour screams for attention –

a central figure among the reds and the blues

look at me! you cry as people picnic on the green grassy lawn.

surrounded by you and your siblings

they agree as they feast on their banana sandwiches

and drink their old fashioned lemonade

you certainly brighten up the day.

Red Orange

#Coloryourworld #CYW #Redorange

As the sun fell past the horizon

the summer sky turned fizzy

the blues turned tan as the summer sun

went on its way to the other side of the earth

from blue to orange and white to red

saying goodbye for tonight, as the moon appeared in its goodbye glow
