The Color Missing
Red, black, and blue are the colors of our work pens. Red is the color of the blood we spill on other people’s mistakes. Blue is the color of the songs we sing on tax forms or pay stubs- every page has a secret melody. Black is the color of the streets we fear most. Black is the color of our signature of approval. Black is the color of our death.
‘But what about the Green pens?’ I ask. They say ‘the ink is too hard to see.’
autumn, color, funeral, imagery, nature, seasons, summer,
from afar, leaves like uncounted catatonic fires
pinned to the chill air
a pointillist’s love affair with a hundred shades of red
the ground is a fresh wound, edgeless
a breeze worries the boughs
stokes the hanging flames into quivering
a slow burn resumes
accompanied by a susurrus of sighs
a dirge for a season
and the summer sky, now turned slate,
Chantelle Anne Cooke
color, death, heart, international, stars, time,
“Never the end…never!”
Death in armor rides true
Through universal star skies dew
His red halo glows as a blood brew
Opal bones burst roses stew
Souls swirl through his world heartbeat hue
Time touches truth blue

black love, blue, color, death, green, red, yellow,
Pattering rain shattering on grey road
With grisly green umbrella she troad
In a black attire looking ghostly white
Her red woeful eyes sending fearful jilt.
Watery moon painting yellowish lips
Frozen fear dancing on pink finger tips
Her flowing hair sweeping pain of ashes
An orange lamp blinking passing wishes.
Violet blooms falling from whining trees
Covering brown earth - a graveyard in pleas
Ah nature, dull and dreary, standing still
Her fervid eloquence under blue spill.
My canary cage cried a fearful moan
While eyes shifted, into thin air she gone.

color, death, discrimination, encouraging, hope, meaningful, symbolism,
ashes in an urn
a lovely new urn
whose ashes are they
who was burned that day
maybe they’re all mixed in
ashes indistinguishable and
undiscriminating in one
could there be hope
appreciation, beautiful, color, death, sunset, time,
in legion of hues
sun falling behind the ridge

Don't look at me,
All the blues.
All the times,
Not having clues.
All the reds
Never turn to pink.
No band no ring.
Red to black?
Way too hard,
Not a tear.
clothes, color, death, red,
There’s a lady dressed in white.
She smiles in the morning light.
There’s a man who’s dressed in brown.
He scowls as the sun goes down.
There’s a girl who’s dressed in blue
Who got her hands stuck in glue.
There’s a boy who’s dressed in red.
It’s not his clothes, he’s just dead.

Why this boat?
Could it be boat of destitution?
Conveying Epidemics, Hunger, Rags,
Malnutrition and Illiteracy.
Descend from me!
Banish from my world!
You cursed word!
You that called education a"Privilege"!
Patrimony of ghetto!
W.H.O called you "Lion of Africa",
U N called you "Agenda ".
Predicament to black,
Livelihood to white.
Harking to conviction,
Capsize and rise no more.
For "Black Rose" to smile again
On the land of plenty.
Just That Archaic Poet
color, death, pain, truth,
Alone with my thoughts-
My Mind concocts
A thousand, million, billion dots
Connecting through my Brain
Colors spread through the depths of my Head
Then I wondered, "Am I dead?"
For no one ever said-
The Truth could hold such pain!

books, color, death, desire, family, fishing, i love you,
I love you now more than ever ,
For you mean the world to me ,
I love everything about you ,
I'll search around the world for thee .
Your smile is so inviting ,
Your kisses are so divine ,
I want to hold you in my arms ,
And bring you safely home .
Whenever I am near you ,
I shake like a willow tree ,
The stars above shine brighter ,
Cause you belong to me.
The Ocean's wave in unison ,
They want to drag you in ,
But I am here to save you ,
" True Love' is from within.
I'm waiting by the window ,
Letting the sun shine in ,
Will you be there for me my dear ,
Together and without sin .

An aspiring marine
is assuredly green,
but he's not as much green
as a drowned marine.

Their Autumn Leaves.
And then embrace the ground.
The pathways I tread
And the horizon I see.
Amidst them, I halt
Amongst them, I sit,
Stare and admire
Them as they shower from trees.
I listen to them,
As they rustle,
In the soothing autumn breeze.
Wondrous it is to listen
To the tales they tell,
Tales spelled in their toungless accents
Tales that are the soul of each of those
Falling, twirling, rustling
color, death, deep, image, innocence,
An overcast of darkness
It’s a misery
Its all I see
Do u see what I see?
The little girl crooked her head to
look around the room
Is it the sky?
Why its nothing like
That my child
See the world from my eyes
The old woman raises her hand to touch
The girls face
Why are you so cold
I see the sun

if what we do
if what we did
if our emotions
that we could see
what color would we be
dark red with passion
bright red with love
black with anger
or a mixture of colors.
what color is your heart
is it perfect
for your body
or is it imperfect
for your soul.
color, death, nature, seasons,
shed outer skin
color, death, emotions, flower, sorrow, violence, war,
Drenched upon the battle field
Under silver weapons wield
Misdirection her only shield
The wildest of roses grew
Upon the blush of her pretty head
Stained with what men had bled
White petals puckered in brilliant red
The Whitest wild rose glimpsed hell
When the battle scene lie deaf
And not a soul to love was left
Moonlight filled the tears she wept
And the Rose pitied the man
Winter came, life kissed death
With the sweep of a snowy breath
Pale hands of the woman Macbeth
Washed White to red to grey
Well summer come and summer go
No eye that lays upon her knows
Her blushing color is to show
How red is to remember
black african american, confusion, history, life, peace, people, sympathy,
Oh, you are so wise
judging with your eyes
what you see
merely a figure
something to despise.
Oh, you are so sympathetic
kind to those who seem pathetic
If you could look beyond skin
you'd see a soul free of sin.
Oh, you are so kind
living with closed eyes
judging all mankind
If only we were color blind.
and sly Raven,
and mixed shades;
~"Waltzing with color" contest by Kim Merryman
Crimson was the blush, coloring my heated cheeks
when tempted by the suggestive words he speaks
A crimson bouquet of budded roses I carried
on the day we said our vows; the day we married.
In a pool of crimson blood I awaited my death,
calling his name until I gasped for my last breath.

anxiety, color, dark, death, depression, emo,
Silence and noise
Daybreak and twilight
In black and white.
Each day living
In a world with no
Colour or life
Or glimmer or glow.
Meaningless as the other
White a nuisance
Black a mere bother.
Soles thudding on ground
From the fears that haunted
Her both night and day.
A gasp of pain
Sharp shoots of dread
Now splattered with red.
color, death, farewell, feelings, goodbye, life, love,
Neptune will cry for our death
Fragments of sea blood
Temblor of regards
Condolences from Poseidon
Exhaling ciaos, inhaling mists
And all else Jupiter, once more
All yellow bleeds fire
None could inhume his dolour
Grams of sorrow, forcely collected
Twining clouds and forming seas
Autarkic trumpets would sing
As colors received by Uranus
beauty, best friend, bird, blue, color, death of a friend, tribute,
You greet me with a happy chirp when I walk into the room.
I see your head turn and you puff up.
You're such a pretty bird.
When I stick my hand into the cage, you fly and land on the right side of the cage.
Then I extend my finger as I reach farther into the cage.
That's when you jump onto my hand.
You chirp and I call you pretty bird.
I motion for you to hop off my hand.
Blue bird, you are a really good friend.
Such a pretty bird...
