Colour. A Photography and Poetry Prompt

Colour. A Photography and Poetry Prompt

I have to admit to finding this week’s subject of ‘Colour’ quite a tricky one. The poem sort of felt forced so I hope it flows OK.

The images were a little easier. After the last couple of weeks of indulgence in the food department, we have gone back to juicing and souping for a few days. The plan is to fit lots of different coloured juices in throughout the day. This incorporates red, orange, green, purple and yellow. I have managed 4 out of the 5 today! It’s funny, out of all of the diets I have reviewed over the last 6 months, this is the one that has made me feel the healthiest.



It’s in the hue of the plants and flowers
I could sit and watch the sunset for hours
Rainbows contain them with a pot of gold
Hair changes tones as you grow ever old

There is different shades from which you can choose
A multi-coloured dress with matching shoes
Pink for a girl or blue for a boy
How they may fade on a well-loved toy

Green with envy or feeling blue
Yellow means happy and orange does too
Oh, what a monochrome world it would be
If none of these colours we were able to see

    What a great idea Vicky. It sounds right up my street and there’s a lot to be said for adding colour to your diet – it may help to realign your chakras for one… Looks and sounds really tasty! And yes, we absolutely do take for granted the wonderful colours all around us. I really ought to inject more colour into my wardrobe for starters.

    It always feels like such a hassle to prepare fruit and vegetables, yet they always look so enticing! I need to make more effort this week 🙂

    Another lovely poem, Victoria! I love how you describe every facet of color–from age, to clothing, and even emotion. Very creative and well-done. Good on you for getting back to healthy eating! I’ve been meaning to try juicing for a few years now, but I’m always wary of my energy level, especially with my active 17 month year old running around. Thanks for sharing. Hope you have a wonderful day.
