‘Synesthesia’ – a d’Verse prompt
My lime for you beryls with deep pine I coral to salmon your puce Your yellows both amber and chrome me Your bice leaves me verting for spruce The teals of your blues, they cobalt me I can't help but rose at your flush There are kelly and coal in your sable That leave me aplum and ablush Please mauve me to perse at your ginger Bister me to chestnut your green My brick is now flaming vermilion And my pearls glow bright aquamarine If I can't pea with you-- I'll go apple My azures for you burn sapphire I'm sure ivory will soon saffron me... For you've set my whole palette afire
The above poem is my take on d’Verse’s ‘Synesthesia’ prompt.
This d’Verse writing challenge is to incorporate music in our poem from the perspective of a synesthete, to write a song filled with colors.

Very clever indeed, and I imagine it delighted your wife!
She did appreciate it, yes 😊
So clever and enjoyable..With wit and expertise you created a gem! You continue to surprise me…in very diverse and poetic ways David:)
:::swoon::: you nailed this one. It would be a good one to read aloud with music in the background.
I have no ear for music! What would you suggest? -David
