There Is Colour – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

VJs Weekly Challenge – Wild Card


V.J. has set a challenge to look over the past week’s writing and choose a word or phrase that repeats and write about that. Well my word is colour …

There Is Colour

He said,
he really did,
he didn’t even blink
there was no guile,
sincere, he just let it out
“I just don’t see colour.”
Well, there you go
in your disregard
focussing on self
issuing platitudes and
diminishing a fundamental
heartfelt me, we and us,
with a blancmange of nothingness,
while everywhere
there is is colour to be celebrated,
and not just white!

  2. Oh, good one. Those platitudes that only highlight, and do not resolve the issues. Thanks for joining in, Paul.

  6. Reminds me of my grandson Jesse, born without arms. I just don’t see that he’s missing them, he is so capable.

  9. There is so much aliveness in this poem, Paul. It reminds me of how at the same time, I see us all as one and also experience the vibrancy and aliveness from the rich diversity of color. Thank you!
