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
