The Color of Joy
I gaze out over your galloping waves, my feet, cooled in the white sand. Above me, clouds mound into patterns splashing the sky with random images that make me see water colors and how we use our hands to produce those puffy designs on artist's paper so like that panoramic canvas that we call sky. I have spread a blanket and my love is there laying back, watching a kite fly overhead. The kite is flying my color, only by accident, of course, but still it blends action and light to my artistic eye. I decide to lie down also, the afternoon is waning and my color and I are in the same mood. I smile, knowing the tide will reach our feet and I can't wait.
Previously published on the Allpoetry website. This poem was for a contest in which you had to write about and show a specific color without naming the color at all. Since blue is mine and my husband's favorite color, I used blue as my poem color. The word blue is not in the poem which is as it should be.

You definitely achieved all specifics with this wonderful light poem - Very airy and makes me want to jump in and soak up some sun - read a book - or just breathe in the wonderful atmosphere - Very nicely written - my only opinion would be to X out some of the "and"s you've added but none the less it - doesn't take away the feel of this piece and the imagery made with your words - blessings, Deni
