Liquid Sunshine, dVerse Poetics - Play with Color

Liquid Sunshine 

Upon my window pane it splashed;
a liquid sunshine slowly danced
a cordial morning song "tap tap".
I gently stretched from head to toe
and hoped my garden would become
a vibrant painting like Van Gogh's
with restless blues and flowing golds.

This "oldie" is linked to dVerse "Poetics" - Theme "Play with Color" and hosted by Victoria of "liv2write2day".  Why don't you give it a try!  

I didn't have time to write anything new tonight... I gambled the evening away and I came up the BIG winner... (I LOVE LOVE the game craps) and then reality hit and my dreams were dashed...  it was all play money.  

Thank you for stopping by and I will sit and relax tomorrow evening and visit all your fabulous blogs.

Liquid sunshine. Your poem flows with brightness touching each object, finishing and the whole is brilliant with color. :)

"...with restless blues and flowing golds."
I love this, how perfect to go with the lovely photography that you do. Beautiful!

lisa said...

These are beautiful photographs Margaret, and as always your poem is wonderful.
Sorry about the play money!!!

This post is worth it for the colors alone, Margaret, but I LOVE how your poetry keeps flowing from you. It amazes me almost as much as your photography.

Q: do you mean upon your window pane in your first line?

Victoria said...

Very much like the word painting you share here. Yes, you have created something with colors like Van Gogh and I'm glad you shared it.

Margaret said...

This poem had been a bit different and I reworked it into a more "structured" poem. I probably should do more of these.

Thank you, everyone!
