Today I saw an ad for a poetry competition. It is something I have not done for a very long time.
It was sponsored by Moleskine which do some awesome notebooks which is sooooo my thing. And the prize was $30,000. True colours on something called VOCAL.
I might check this out later but for the moment I didn’t enter my poem because I would have to have a membership of VOCAL and I dont have the money to do the membership fees.
But here is my poem for you to enjoy. I think it encapsulates the way I see things.
I am not a binary,
Not a black or a white,
I am colour, I am vibrancy.
I am the dance of life in a swirl of rainbow forms.
I am the intermingling of light and dark.
I scream and whisper in tones and shades of purity.
Twirling and entwining,
Like a sea of stormy colour,
Buffeting and rising up against each other,
Only to then calm,
And gently ripple.
A spot of colour,
A spot of colour
A majestic tapestry of multidimensional form.
Woven of thought and feeling,
Of life’s colours
And only at the end can we see the full picture in its entirety
A life of colour. A life of meaning.
I am colour.
