2016 Poem a Day Challenge #29

April is National Poetry Writing Month! The challenge is to write a poem every day of the month. I’m using prompts from Writer’s Digest, NaPoWriMo and Kelli Russell Agodon’s list. Occasionally, I may use my own prompt ideas as well.

Today’s Prompt:

Write a series of short poems inspired by your observations of different colors and moods.

A New Color

I think I would like
my hair to be silver grey
a warning to youth

Perhaps I could have
charcoal eyes and olive skin
walk miles in those shoes

Sometimes I might rip
the black and white flags waving
to soft piles of threads

And sew some new clothes
for my blue and yellow soul
like mama showed me.
