Ann's Poetry Calendar...The Fading Colors of Love
once their love was vivid...
and sparkling white
sapphire words from the holy book
announced the special day
"many waters are not able to extinguish love,
nor can rivers themselves wash it away"  *
she wished to walk with him where
the yellow grass grows knee-high
yellow jonquils filled a cheerful bouquet
pink lips, blushed cheeks, bubbly champagne
he longed to splash in aqua pools
near the silver sand dunes
but somewhere along the way
his brown eyes faded to icy blue
he put on a purple robe;
in a black and blue kingdom he reigned
three brown speckled eggs; a gift
country cream, pumpkin spice, bittersweet
a black parade, acrid words dyed wasabi green
no more red kites, red balloons, red satin sheets
now their love has faded...
to hoarfrost white

Nicely articulated and the visual was especially poignant. Great interpretation.

very powerful delivery about fading love, Linda Jo...That Soloman was no Elvis, but he had his share of hits in his day...len

at first i wondered if my eyes were getting worse, but then i realized what you had done.  and then i read the words - how marvelous!  the story you tell of love fading away, the images you use - just awesome.

omg what an extremely amazing poem. Your words captured the readers attention from the very start, colors that dazzled the mind and emotions that held the heart in a velvet glove of color.

Excellent Linda Jo!!!! 
A really stunning read. Love how you faded out the words gradually, just like lost love it fades a bit at a time.
