Paint Chip Poetry: Playing with Poetry #playingwithpoetryNPM 21/30

This month, I’m tagging along with ChristieMargaretJoneMary Lee, and other writers to play with poetry for National Poetry Writing Month. I’ll be creating poems using haikubes, metaphor dice, magnet poetry, paint chips and anything else that catches my fancy.

My first attempt to create a paint chip poem using Margaret’s paint chip poem for kindergarten writers ended up in a very different poem. So today I tried again. Words in bold are paint chip colors.

Always Greener

Green is a pasture after snow melt and spring rain
Green is a wise grasshopper on the garden path
Green is a cat’s eye glinting in the dark
Green is fresh dew on a spring morning
Green is a picnic in a blooming grove
Green is a splash of lime to brighten a meal
Green is seawashed glass on the shore after a storm
Green is a friendly frog beside the summer pond
Green is a sugar leaf maple before the fireworks of fall

    I love all of this green, especially sea washes glass because I have a necklace with a green sea glass piece. And of course you found a way to use cat’s eye.

    Green with envy at your play in the paint chips. I really need to try this out.
