Color Poems

Sunset-Golden Gate Park-San Francisco, CaliforniaYellow

Like a beaming,
little bugs shining
for attention,
it sticks out like the sun sticks
the world out with light.

Steaming creatures
sparkle into flames
of one little color.
It sounds like a fire
of beautiful creation.

Like the sky and the ocean
coming together
to make a shining view
that never fades.

Yellow Red Blue
Like a wave of storks
beaming toward you,
the dolphin and the bird.
Many blue colors are
very nice shades
of an unjudged color
that shines everywhere.
