Paint Chip Poetry

A creative poetry series!

This series is pretty simple, I post 4 colours of paint with their names and I use those names in a poem. I decided to add two extra rules for myself. First, if there are more than two words, I keep them together, only allowing punctuation to separate the words. And secondly, I use the words in the order in which they appear.

If you want to join in on the fun, feel free to create your own poem inspired by the colours below. Either drop it into the comments or link this post to your own so I can read it 🙂

Memories flashing in my mind
Brought to life by the wafting smells from the oven
A table filled with food and families
The candied yams emerging from behind the glass door
Their golden aura filling the kitchen
How silly it is to only have them once a year
One final pass with the flaming torch
Bubbling to perfection under the inferno 
Awaiting our tastebuds 
As the memories flood back
