Up




UP

The optimism of cream --
rising.

The power of frog legs --
leaping.

The cheer of sunny sides --
inspiring.

  1. How wonderful to put those things together: cream, frogs, the sun. How surprising and yet how perfect!

  2. Love this! The imagery you evoke in so few words, Mary Lee...to remix and reuse what you've done with these paint chips: your words rise off the page, leap out and inspire.

  4. These look like paint sample names, though I would be astounded to hear of a paint color called "grateful." The title is apt; so very "up" kinds of thoughts! Here's to rising further.

  5. Mary Lee - Your lovely poem today, and indeed the entire post, is giving me permission to just use the paint color names as inspiration. I've been trying to weave them all together to create a poem. This isn't always easy! Thank you for that! Also, will the call for PF hosts July-December be going out soon? I missed it the last time around. Thanks! -- Christie https://wonderingandwondering.wordpress.com/

  6. I love how you connected the colors to the word "UP." Pretty darn clever, my friend!
