My National Poetry Month challenge to myself has become a collaboration between synaesthetic artist Sammy-John, myself, Anjum Wasim Dar and Jay Gandhi: Day Seventeen: Palette 1

Palette 1

 “Palette 1”
Pastel on paper
Palette 1
Autumnal graces
visible still, blue skies peek
through greening foliage,Falling Grecian urn
ravaged classic, hold on, red
sea, will make the way-Crested quetzal sings
‘freedom, welcomes Spring, though caught
clipped hurt, let go’…Hope must never end…

After World

fields unsowed
bear ripened fruit,
all ills grow better,
Bold Light comes back.

Earth rises again from sea,
beautiful and green.

Verve and Zest, lad and lass
hidden in the wood,
beneath earth’s ash
One Eye’s gallows
sup morning dew.

Sun has a daughter
who follows
same path
as her mam.

2019 Paul Brookes

Palette #1

summer is all about
ripe yellow mangoes
and scorching blue sky—
both, make me go red

By Jay Gandhi
