Ms Palette – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

Colour – RDP Sunday



“The purest and most thoughtful minds are those which love colour the most.”  John Ruskin


Ms Palette

Some people are very grey,
while some are plain beige,
that’s who they are,
others, unfortunately,
are determinedly black or white
and entirely predictable,
some are bohemian rainbows,
free spirits,
like my girl,
colour my day.
