Blossoming Words


“Poem” exudes a periwinkle
While “poetry” is yellow,
“Words” emit a soft forest green
And “mesmerize” twinkles blue.

“Melancholy,” too, marinates in blues
But grey and silver it construes.

“Surprise,” tut tut, is such violent red
That “joy,” dressed in white,
Must clear his shocked head.

Words gambol in a meadow of colors
Colors flourish into flowers of words.
