Green leaves shine against sky.
Yellow sunsets in smog.
Deep blue indigo of twilight.
Big sky captured in pyramid form
which she clangs and clangs…
Triangle wrangles the boys home.
Still pond reflects sky
studded with puffs of white cloud.
Peace prevails before winds.
The lilacs’ blooms taken by wind
for a moment speckled
the mid summer sky.
At dusk stars appear one by one
like magic. A child looks up
begins to count.

Poem for New World Creative Union’s Wednesday Wake-Up Call…
Take the following items and create something from them: prose, a poem, a sketch, a watercolor, et cetera. All of the following items must be a part, and distinguishable, of whatever you create:
1. The colors yellow, blue, and green
2. A triangle.
5. A child.
