Mauvelous

Salford, 19th June 2020

#CYW

Maybe, you would call it purple – but there’s definitely

a shade or two of pink hiding in this colour

unless you were looking at it really close up –

very few would succeed to match it up

except of course the guys or girls at the wallpaper warehouse – who

like mixing up the reds blues and yellows

of course you spot its pinkish hues up by fellow plants

up in the garden

shades of pink popping up the yellows, purples and blues

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

Blush

#Coloryourworld #cyw #blush

By heavens, that’s a lovely colour of pink you’ve just turned

Looks like someone’s a little bit embarrassed

Unless of course you’ve been caught in the act wi’ your

Someone special –

Hardly a surprise now is it ?

Jazzberry Jam

Salford, 14th April

Hibiscus

A tale of #flowers and #jazzberryjam for the #coloryourworld challenge.

Colour of the Garden Hibiscus

it’s making a bit of a noise

but for fans of this wonderful flower

its a noise they all enjoy

attracting the birds and the butterflies

raising with visitors a smile

who will spend some time in the garden

enjoying the flowers for a while

Piggy Pink

#Piggypink #Coloryourworld #cyw #pig #bacon #bank

piggybank-art

Piggy is much more than humble bacon

It’s common to many – you’re not mistaken

Generous to a fault is dear old pig

Got to be said – his heart is big

Yet to avoid the fate of the butchers hook

he will be found – tending your bank book

Razzamatazz

 

 

#Coloryourworld #cyw #colors #pinks #reds #razzamatazz

 

Raspberry donuts – that’s what reminds me of you

A right zesty colour, bursting with notes of

Sharp pink and red – but unlike your strawberry cousin, notes of

Purple, which sing out in the pudding bowl

Best in a jam. in a pudding or ice cream, some will

Even eat it in a yogurt

Real connoisseurs eat you tween almond sponge and base in a

Right royal bakewell tart, but notes are played

Year on year when you’re served up on toast in jam

 

razzmatazz

Reactions to your

Appearance in gardens – are amazing – flying insects

Zipping around the garden for a chance to grab your

Zesty Nectar

Maybe its your fragrance and colour you relase

As they circle and glide around your petals

To get to that tasty nectar

Aiming sharp towards the target

Zoned towards the prize

Zipping into your flower head for their reward

Pink Carnation

#Coloryourworld #cyw #pinkcarnation #acrostic #pinks #flower

11th April 2017

carnation.png

Could it be

A reason why I never can forget you

Real beauty – enveloped in a dress the colour of that flower

Never forgotten that spring night after

An attempt to grab your attention

Tomorrow, they say – is another day, but

I can’t get the vision of your smile from my head

One day – the fairytale might come true, but its

Noted you’re wearing that flower tonight

Cotton candy

Salford 9th April 2017

a sweet poem for the color your world challenge by inkdropk

#poetry #confectionery #cyw #coloryourworld #cottoncandy #candyfloss

 

whispy wires of candy

softly rising into a soft tornado

gathering in pace as it goes

 

sensational sugar collides

against the  tornado catcher

fallen to be reused again

 

whisps gather pace

collecting speed and sugar

as a sweet cirrus begins to grow

 

floating sweet dreams

fly high in the air

caught by the ice cream man

 

man looking in has to use great skill

to gather the coloured pink cloud

to create smiles on waiting faces

Magenta

#coloryourworld #cyw #magenta

magenta

A mix up in the paint factory

tween two pots of paint

led to a discussion in

the art class

 

Blue and red merged

into purple – or pink ?

a colour for red grapes ?

it made students think

 

Politically Neutral – Neither Red or Blue

the Greens and the Liberals loved it

but in the city they pondered

over the banners in street

 

Kids reproducing –

a colourful scene

with new shade going nicely

with splashes of green

 

Reminders of flowers

out by garden lawn

transferred to canvas

with ideas – reborn
