COLORFUL



Today's photohunters theme is COLORFUL- thanks to TNCHICK.

This is a shot that I took this past April at the kite festival in Washington D.C.

It was the opening day of the Cherry Blossom festival. A more colorful day I have not experienced in quite a while

But whenever the roof came white
The head in the dark below
Was a shade less the color of night,
A shade more the color of snow.
Robert Frost



Color


Love's a color, mine is blue.
Choose a color, how about you?
When the paler shades go down
then you know I'll come around.

When the colors mix into,
a swell of rainbows, less the blue,
There you'll find me,
pull me through...

Love's a color,
and now yellow.
Bright and bold,
never mellow.
Happy going in between,
yellow spilling in every seam.

Love's a color, and now red.
Feeling's deeper, nothing's said.
When the red is burning through,
pull me out and into you.
Passion holding tighter still,
warmer tones in overkill.
How my colors all fulfill...

GREAT POEM...
I tell my kids my favorite coloris clear... but I love grey, all shades of it.
In a black and white photo, what comes out grey is really Red...

Kerri said...
