The Color Of Her Words


When she spoke
her words became
shades of silver and gray
Filling the morning mist
rising from her body
with a rainbow of thoughts
In her mind
she could see herself
covered in their silky touch.
Colors sparkled as she moved
breathing in and out
she walked
shimmering
colors swirling around her
In a maze she walked
while jeweled tones fell
gently beneath her feet.
Her eyes opened upon the morning world
seeing what others could not
The color of her words
filled her with wonder
as her laughter echoed
in silver and gray

Really like the idea of speaking in colors and it makes your poem both sparkle, and move with slow grace.

Melanie, the mere idea of words taking on color, her laughter echoing in silver and gray... stunning. You should publish this, truly. I like all your work, but this left me breathless.
