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 🙂

Surviving underground
Mushroom clouds one hundred years ago
Dark truffle grows outside the bunker window
Unable to find new nourishment
Lain agin barrels
Empty for days
Dreaming of chocolate swirl
Atop imaginary ice cream
Slipping into exhausted sleep
Staring at the dark truffle
Just outside the window
