With the Corona virus having another spike here in Oregon, Governor Kate Brown has called for a ‘pause’. We are not going out to restaurants, even for take out. Our big weekly adventure is grocery shopping. But we do go out for a walk every day, and the leaves have been absolutely inspirational.
So I am playing with poetry again.
Red, like sunset, piled on the sidewalk
Red, like flowers, blowing down the street
Red, like candy, drifting in the gullies
Dancing along to the world’s heart beat
And some haiku:
Leaves on the sidewalk
Colors jumbled like confetti
After summer’s last fling
Arches of color
Bright gothic cathedrals
Welcome us home from the rain
Orange against blue
Making both brighter
Color theory come to life
I hope you like playing with words, too!
