Poem a Day – Day 13 – Prompt is Color

IMG_0625.JPG

The OctPoWriMo prompt for today is color. We could pick a color to inspire or reflect on the feeling colors bring. I love this prompt because I feel colors do affect me and I tend toward warm, bright colors to boost my mood. But somedays I respond to the muted colors. Today’s poem speaks to those colors. Thanks for reading and have a great day! 🙂

Muted

Yesterday’s bright sunshine
Has faded from sight
The sky now seems empty
Wiped clean overnight

The fog crept in this morning
The playful palette has dimmed.
Grays and light blues now cover
Green grass and tree limbs.

The vibrant colors are now muted
The light no longer the same
The way the light touches us
seems to have shifted and changed

Yet somehow the smudged sky
And misty morning seem more real.
With the brightness swept away
All the honesty is revealed.
