‘No blue without yellow and without orange, and if you do blue, then do yellow and orange as well, surely’ – Vincent van Gogh
Spring is always fresh and new with gentleness of pastel hues so delicate, tender, newly born on a gentle, breezy, sunny morn. But autumn still retains the blue of summer skies, the yellow glow and orange of sun in leaves. Better still the stains of berries red and purple, damsons, sloes; I’m happier when summer goes and autumn, free from morning mist, reveals the colours summer kissed. Kim M. Russell, 30th August 2022
For this Tuesday’s Poetics our guest host, Christopher, overwhelms us with choices. He says that ‘choice’ is a favoured theme among poets and has given us some choice examples of poems about making difficult choices, the wrong choices, and choices and consequences, all to help us make our own choices and craft poems to do with the concept of choice, in any style, form, meter, syntax, rhyme scheme, line length, or formatting.
