Redolent of the sun

by Jem Croucher

Colours I remember
from when I was very young
Stayed with me into later years
with so many seasons come
But one has been a steadfast
for me a lucky fellow
The vibrancy of summer
captured in the colour yellow

into the world we sit upon

Indigo Six

by Jem Croucher

Seven colours, seven days
and indigo’s in sight
The sixth one in the rainbow
reminiscent of the night

Deepest blue as evening fades
and quieter hours reign
Holding banquet to the hours
‘Til morning comes again

Blue Five

by Jem Croucher

Seven colours, seven days
It’s blue today for me

which by its calming waters
I will often simply sit

and now I’ll not find it
’til Springtime I know
It was careless of me
for I had it right there
like a smile on the breeze
just ready to share

We dream of yellow

by Jem Croucher


In the gun-metal grey of midwinter
When cold grips vice-like
and, huddled in blankets
we stay cocooned in the warmth
of a fruitcake and hot tea afternoon
and dream of yellow

with tinted blues and mellow greens

and everytime i twisted it there would be
a miniature crash; a universe of patterns

Nasturtiums do not like the cold
They do the same thing every year
Just the merest hint of frost
And they just wilt with fear

The creeper and the honeysuckle
Both are turning red
Just one more show of colour
Before off to winter bed

Yellows, blues and greens
Along with trees all turning now
Autumn’s here it seems

Though I know you’re no saint,
Which colours to choose
Your portrait to paint?

Traversing boundaries,

Transgressing might,

I bow to you,

O Glorious sunlight!

Fist and Face

by beeseeker

Fist and face,

Colours blur

Behind drawn curtains

It’s hard to be sure.

I couldn’t keep your faith;

Your pointing finger hurt,

Every remorseless time.

Things that are blue (Versatile palette #2)

by Devina

(via Pinterest, click to see)

Calm sky. Vast shadowy oceans.
Piercing haunting eyes.
The smell of fresh linen. The cry of a bird.
Baby boys. Ice and wind. Tears.
Lazy late summer evenings. Primary school uniforms.
The Oxford dictionary.
