Red and Blue and Green and Pink
All would be just meaningless words
If not for you my precious gifts
Here’s to you, Cheers! A thank you drink!
Of Violets and Oranges in the lush Green lawn
Of Silver and Gold ornaments that people adorn
Life is so full of chromatic abundance
Here’s to you, Cheers! For a rustic persistence!
You made me see all superficially
You made me blind with all the flashy lights
I could see no more of true colors underneath
My mind could see though not visually
The dark world camouflaged by all the bright lights
I could see no more; you let my heart seethe.
The poem is a combination of multiple poetic forms and techniques. It is a Sonnet where first half is an Ode (rhyme – ABBA CCDD) , second half is an Elegy (rhyme – ABC ABC) using poetic devices like Apostrophe, Enumeratio, Metaphor, Epistrophe, and Chiasmus.
Hope you liked it!
