A Brewing Storm

Salt marshes fade away
beneath September skies
tinged with nevermore grey
and a violet obsession.
I insist I’m right as rain,
and brave the nor’easter
to follow the riverway,
fired up by a raven wing
and the promise of a stormy day.

My response to Imaginary Garden with Real Toads Artistic Interpretations with Margaret:  Color it

I’ve never heard of Sherwin Williams but I imagine it’s a similar company to Dulux or Farrow and Ball. Margaret asks us to imagine naming all the colours a paint company offers. She says that perhaps the next best thing is to write a poem using creative paint names and challenges us to use five names from the ‘fan decks’ she has shared to write a new poem.  I liked some of the names so much, I couldn’t choose just five!

  1. We use Sherman Williams paint for interior walls and exterior outside in the weather affected areas. You used a bunch, did really good. Today I used seven colors, elaborated on four, three persons and the mention of a dog. I’m going back now to italicize the colors.
    p.s. Did you mean for Stormy Day to also be a color? I used “Rain at Night.”

    1. Thanks Jim! I think ‘stormy day’ should be a colour, but there might be a huge debate about which colour and shade it should be. 🙂 I’m just about to read and comment.

  2. salt marshes (I so wanted to use that one) – you have created a wonderfully moody piece here – it goes hand in hand with the luscious image. Well done!
