Magenta II

The spot on the rainbow where red meets blue

you could call it “purple” – but it’s lighter than that

some would say its got a much vibrant tone

the girls love it – it’s got more to it than your average “pink”

so clothes , cars and anything else with this colour

sticks out for miles.

Lavender

Salford, 28th April 2020

#CYW #Lavender

Lavender by Inky

Located in a part of the garden

a plant that’ll go rampant if you let it

very nice smell – its natural oil

each stem full of fragrance ready to be crushed

notably used in perfumes

deodorant ? not so much

everyone seems to like its colours though

ranging from blue to light purple

Indigo

Indigo paint powder – image from wikipedia

#cyw #indigo

It’s a colour known for its position on the rainbow

nestled between its brother , blue and its sister, violet

definately making a statement on the home furnishings front

in fabrics, curtains, sofas and carpets

garments too – brought to life by this deep dark purply blue

only – don’t call it blue – its got its own character

Hot Magenta

#CYW #HotMagenta

Salford Street sign – in Hot Magenta

Its not what you’d call a subtle colour

and it couldn’t be called pink or purple

a fiery marriage where red meets blue

but mother nature seems to like

using their off spring to bring a bit

of eye catching colour to the garden

look around you’ll see it every where else too

in signs, on walls and in windows

the future’s bright – the future’s …. Magenta

Fuschia

#CYW #Fuschia

watercolour from stock art of fuschias

Floating in the warmth of summer

under their pink ballerina dresses – purple petticoats

swaying in the gentle breeze

colour to brighten up anyone’s day

hard to miss – even though they try to be

incognito

a wonder for visiting birds and bees

Ballerinas

Salford 12th September 2019

Ballerinas : Painting by Inky using Painter Essentials 6


They woke up one spring morning,
at the light of the sun
Bobbing around in a gentle breeze
their dancing – just begun

Over the long grass and daisies they dropped
as their coloured dresses flipped and flopped
and as they danced round in the wind
the daisies waited for the breeze to recind

Duetting with the dandelions
as their seed just flew away
wondering who – apart from the wind
that they would like to play

Pink and purple parading in pairs
above a daisy covered shower
among the blades of fresh green grass
a wonderful coloured flower

Blue-Violet

#CYW #Blue-Violet #Colours

Tuesday 13th August 2019

Some say this flower

Has its own unique place in the flowerbed

As it’s not blue, or violet – and please

Do Not call it Purple – there’s far too much blue in

Each of its petals

Some call it Violet-blue, but gardeners know it as Blue-Violet

Brambles

Born on a spikey berry bush

Purple / pink fruit bursting with flavour

bursting with juice – pressed to the touch

cooked down in a pan – to a tasty mush

turned into jelly – a taste to savour

spread over bread – or sometimes toast

kids enjoy the tastes so much

Breakfast time they enjoy them the most

Conquered

#OctPoWriMo

6th October 2018

You’ve been trying to climb that hill for a while now

facing off against its challenges

its crags, sharp sides and slippy hand holds

not to mention the wet slate underneath

dark purples your pals as you rose

overcoming every obstacle in your way

take in the rewards at the top

the view of the blue sky – its lovely.

Vibrant

dsc_0197

Various colours come together

In union to

Bring a smile to peoples faces

Rainbows of bright

And brilliant shades come together

Note how the primaries of red, blue and yellow merge and

Transform into the secondaries  of Orange, Green and Purple
