A Many-Colored Poem

16 Jun

Though we may not welcome the scorching summer heat, the season does at least deliver a roaring burst of color—sunlight and flowers, rivers, swimsuits, and snow cones—all of it a welcome change from the monochromatic tones of winter. This week’s Badgerblog selection is a beautiful celebration of these various colors and the ways they liven up our lives.

Rainbow Colors

Lively pink is gentle, precious fur, as if from a soft, baby bunny.
Sunny yellow is a calm, fresh summer breeze as bright
as a sunflower’s silky petals. Blinding white is a lonely
depressing feeling, as if the gray were wiping a smile off your face.
Sensitive purple is a shy, blushing cheek like a glowing,
sparkly moon on your face. Proud blue is a dazzling, royal
blue sky floating above like a bucket of cotton balls
with twilight baby blue colors.
