Prompt 8: Color

Tulip by Sian of Spin A Song of Sixpence

This week's prompt of color comes from My Bellavia.

Thomas' Artistic Prism
He shares masterpieces,
rainbows and smiles,
painted with shades of truism.
Love gathered hues
and living color,
there is no space for darkness here.

His happy life goes on,
ever missing shadows
that cloud typical minds.

'Tis him, who shines in awe
through a prism,
coloring my world with his!

We also offer these haiku that treat the subject of color. Have fun!

Going deeper
And still deeper —
The green mountains.
Santoka Taneda

Splendid affinity
sun's great halo
green leaves
Sôen Nakagawa

  1. Since I am so addicted to color :), I could hardly wait for this week to come! Thanks again for such an inspiring prompt.

  2. I think this may be my best haiku yet. And I want to thank everyone for their praise and thanks. I'm not used to this! but I love it. It's spring in Vermont!

  3. Spring color emerged into the sudden warmth of this week. Before that,though, the promises of spring color were every bit as beautiful.

    I'm looking forward to another week of sharing the creativity road with fellow contributors. Thanks for being here. Have fun!

  4. I enjoy participating here weekly and am continuously enriched with all that is shared here.


  5. I'm ready with the colors of Holi an Indian festival. Thanks Andree and Sandy and My Bellavia for the wonderful prompt!

  6. I also wanted to say that I won't be able to visit everybody's poetry offerings til late in the day... I didn't want anyone to think I was ignoring them. :)

  7. This is fantastic. concocting a world of colours and adorning it on the nature.Nature"s magic.. i am new to this. But greatly imressed. kunjubi

  8. I took another route for colour.


  9. BTW, I have moved house and I m ight take while to comment as I do not net access for a while. I post this from my brother's PC!

  10. I'm looking forward to reading each of your offerings this evening.

    Thank you for the prompt, and for your creative works. :)

  11. Didn't write anything new because I already had this - which seemed such a perfect fit. Is that lazy???

  12. This is the first time I'm participating in your prompt. Found your site through someone else's blog. I'm still fairly new in writing poems so, I'm glad to find other people with similar interest.

  13. Hello again. This was a nice prompt. All I had to do was look out my deck window and I had my poem.


  14. I thought I was going to miss the prompt once more! Not sure how much I'll manage to read, though...

  15. break of day rings
    black thoughts give way
    palette reveals

  16. I'm a little late posting this because I was away over the weekend: Stormy Colors

    I will try to look at and comment on other contributions as soon as I can.

  17. Did it in limericks this week.

    Blessings all.

  18. Perfect for my recent trip to Pike Street Market in Seattle

  19. MyBellavia is one of my sisters. I've been encouraging her to do more writing for years. I finally convinced her to start blogging on our sister blog. Next I created a blog for her so she would have a forum to do her writing! One Single Impression has had such a positive influence on her. She's having more "me" time to express herself. She's been out of the loop for 20 years raising special needs kids and I so wanted her to find herself again. Thank you all!

    P.S. I just noticed that I'm not listed on the BlogRoll yet.

  20. What fun!!! Once again I've contributed on each of my blogs this morning with Colorful Comeback at Small Reflections and Colorful Images of the Mind at Sacred Ruminations.

    I look forward to seeing what everyone else did with this week's theme ;--)

    Hugs and blessings,

  21. I'm alittle late this week as I've not been too well and am just catching up. I hope to add an image later.

  22. first day back in town, making up for lost time, as always love haiku... colors abound in spring!!!.. haven't had an opportunity to visit lately but will try to see others as well...

  23. Love the poetry prompts you provide!

    How about FREEDOM - - the week after Memorial Day?
