The Paint I Ain’t.



I wish that I was hued in blue,
swirled in sapphire and song.

Perhaps I’d brush myself in turquoise,
too, cobalt all this skin I’m in
until it’s cyan, self

I am not peacock
-proud. I also am not
…….Or plaid.
(That’s sad.)

I ain’t no saint.

But someday I’ll
paint my
a blueberry scone.
an ocean wave.
a sky.
……..a dragon.



Fantastic prompt over at Toads today. Come play.

    I do love a poem with a De-ragon and wordplay! And I love the colour blue! So it’s a double whammy! I wish I was self-asured!

  9. WhimsyG thank you for participating in my prompt! You’ve created such a fun, colourful piece here. I love the last stanza especially – the idea of painting myself an ocean, a dragon! So much imagination. 🙂 Have a great weekend! -Stacie

    I really like the pattern of your poems and the almost rhymes
    “paint my
    a blueberry scone.”
    Brilliant hue!
