COLOUR ON CURT CORNERS, PART 5; COLOURED SHOWERS

I couldn’t have had a better start to my day than seeing these beautiful photos of wisteria cascading down a building in Paris and reading the wonderful poem alongside. What a vision in mauve! Just had to re-blog! Photos and poetry by Damien B. Donnelly.

IMG_8583Lilac showers
Parisian walls
to lift the day
from tones of grey,

colours whisper
to hungry minds
from lithesome leaves
to planting seeds,

branches bound
like blood to body,
to walls so willing
like veins now filling,

lilac leans
with leaves of green,
gently swaying,
thoughts are weighing,

nature bends
to hear my call
and pens take flight
on lines at night.

COLOUR ON CURT CORNERS, PART 1, FANTASTIC FLUTTERINGS

After setting up my first ever blog (about exploring colour) and makng my first post I set out to explore other blogs and found this delightful urban mural in Paris and accompanying poem, the first “find” in my journey of exploration and discovery into colour. It made me very happy. Thank you deuxiemepeau

Deuxiemepeau; Picturing Poetry by Damien B. Donnelly

IMG_8273On dull days
when the sun
absconds from sky,
when grey grinds
gloom into gutters
and mothers utter
‘stay inside’,
children’s minds
flutter to unfold
like umbrellas opening;
colours cascading
over concrete clutter
like candy to calm
a calamity.

In the midst
of the mundane
and the murky,
inspiration catches
on the canvas of creation
like wings willing
to cut through clouds
and gain the grace
of the sun.

Children’s minds,
so magnificent,
hold matter so magical
that ordinary moments
can become such
extraordinary miracles.
