If I were a color, could you imagine what I’d be?

The yellow of the sun, or deep blue, like the sea

Orange, like a marigold, or just plain lily white

I have to find the color that fits me, just right

Perhaps I am purple, shades of light and dark

Perhaps I am red, set the sizzle, light the spark

Green, the cool of summer grass, between my toes

So many different choices, tell me, do you know?

Or maybe I am, merely black, like the pitch of night

Tis where I often find myself, always when I write

I think today, I shall be, all the colors I can find

Lost forever, happily, in the rainbow of my mind


Prompt: What color do you feel like today?
