Watercolour Stains


The palette is dry
And his face wet
with stains of colours
that survived

Soon the light will blend every colour to a pastel smile
Soon the life,
will die

Poor smile. That's different: here the light represent bad instead of good.

Ben the female-thats intersting...its BEEN a while. Thanks for dropping in. I appreciated the comments as always. Nice to get back in touch with a few of the old group. I like this. Short and to the point. Especially the "pastel smile." Great description.

there are so many ways you can read this - I love poems like that. Also, I always love poems that keep it simple and short! (much like my haiku and tanka :)
I really like your blog!

Thank you for your comment on my haiku. My husband and daughter tell me that something is still not quite right with "Haiku # 5, Revised."

I, too, thought your "Watercolor Stains" was a gem. I am looking forward to reading more of your poetry. I am just now, late in life, reading more poetry.

wanted you to knmow my blog moved due to some unfortunate circumstances, but I have not stopped writing. For an invite I will need an email address. If you are not comfortable with this that's cool, but it's the only way to keep it private between people I trust online and keep out stalkers and such. Appreciate your support over the years and keep blogging.
