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

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

Eggplant

#coloryourworld #cyw #eggplant

eggplant

Everybody cooking knows about the eggplant –

great addition to a stew – and staple of Mediterranean cooking

good baked in the oven , stewed or even in a soup

purple in colour – though some mistake it for black

liked by vegetarians for its meaty texture

a fruit of its plant, though its referred as a vegetable

nice to eat in a salad with a dressing

together with feta, olive oil, olives and tomatoes – a wonderful supper dish

Red Violet

redviolet

In between the lavender stalks

and violets of purple and blue

pelargoniums – can be seen too

 

Dotted around the flowery sea

it’s easy for butterflies – or bees

to get to these flowers from the trees

 

patches of red – amongst blue and green

gardeners smile as they see the scene

beginnings of rainbows – best ever seen

 

whilst artists in studio capture in paint

a picture on canvas – in pencil drawn feint

red violets in yellow jugs – on a table that’s quaint

Over most of the globe, this

Right royal plant with its majesty of blooms

Can be found spreading colour indoors or outdoors alike

Happy in a pot indoors or outdoors

In the expanse of the garden, its

Delicate flowers bring a smile on special days

Purple pizazz

Pizazz.jpg

 

Punk princess hits the dancefloor

In a purple ensemble – to grab your eye

Zest for life – shown as she waltzes in her size nines

And the crowd watches her move around the floor

Zany hair in a neon style – watch her

Zip around the floor in a plastic dress, of the same colour

Vivid Violet

#Coloryourworld #cyw #vividviolet #violet

Very striking – you stand out in a crowd

In fact, your flower heads  offset the other colours in the border, from the

Orange of the marigolds surrounding your stem or the

Lemon yellows of the pansies nearby

Everyone in the garden, enjoys your colourful view, as

They pass you walking on the garden path
