steady, solid, here I am always here always here for you here for your arms for your backside for your back to rest rest upon me now rest your weary legs rest against me; the rest are flashy, true, still true I am always true inside, always true outdoors, always true, I am dull, but still still, unmoving, reliable still your beating heart still your breath, your mind still here, still I am still here I am still I am dull I am still
The above poem is my take on d’Verse’s ‘True Colours’ prompt.
The writing challenge: To take the perspective of a color in our poems: maybe the vibe and personality of each color is just as we have perceived it. Maybe not. So… let’s leave reality for awhile, slip out of our human bodies and become nothing but a color.
I have always had a fondness for dark, dull colors, and my poem above was written from the perspective of the color brown.
