About Color Me November

It's pretty simple. Write a poem a day, all throughout the month of November. The poems are about different colors of your choice. At the end...celebrate! Because you just did a challenge for yourself and you succeeded!

I have no clue where the idea for Color Me November came from, but I like it. It's simple, yet a poem a day for a month seemed like a great way to force myself to devote time out of my day to writing, as well as work on some writing skills. My hope is that other people catch on, too, so that I can meet more people in the poetry-writing community, and so that we can give each other feedback and celebrate at the end of the month.

So what are you waiting for? Go for it! Take on Color Me November!

Amaranth

 

 

You must be quite lonely, with the whole world forever.
Tell me,
When you stand high on that mountain
And see the backs of clouds as they lie
Belly-down on blue,
Do you enjoy the
Solitude?
Tell me,
When you stand high on that mountain
And the growling, hunchbacked clouds
Lash their lightning claws at the earth,
Do you feel your
Worth?
Tell me,
When you stand high on that mountain
And the clouds scurry like mice
Above your laurel-crowned head
Do you wish you were
Dead?

You must be quite lonely, with the whole world forever.
But with the heart of a man and the eyes of a god,
It's a curse you'll never wilt.

Celadon

 

 

Smeared streaks taint my skin.
Make me whole again
So that I may never know the cracks
When the blood dries.
Where is my redemption yet?
Bathe me, glaze me;
I would give anything
To be put on a shelf.
Leave me, forget me
Until the time comes to move on
And the things you carry
Must be taken

Or left behind.
