the lushness of the verdant countryside
lays heavy on my senses
so fragrant with the scent of new green
(does it smell like grass.....or just green?)
the pinks smell oh so sherbet sweet
the blue of the sky smells like crisp cool waters
the deep greens of the forest have an earthy tone
the purples smell like purples should smell
fruity and smooth and honey sweet
the yellow's scent is so so fragile
like a colored moth taken to wing
or a frail petal fallen from on high
yellow is by far the hardest to describe
I'd like to say it smells like the sun
but I've never known the sun's scent
so maybe it smells like deep deep summer
all sunny fresh and clean
the grey of the shale rocks smell like a mountain cave
with a hint of a hidden secret or two
thrown in for good measure
I believe white is the epiphany of scent
pure and innocent, gentle and kind
the ivory flower nods her head in a tender glance
as she smiles serenely to the sky
yes white, by far the purest scent
for it speaks of heav'nward Angel's wing
and a friend's gentle embrace
when the heart is sorely tried
I'll take my world colored just as nature intends
and live at peace with nature, God, and man

 "Our life, exempt from public haunt, finds tongues in trees, books in the running brooks, sermons in stones, and good in everything."
--William Shakespeare

 Nothing can deter a poet, for he is actuated by pure love. Who can predict his comings and goings? "Thoreau"

Colors with scents!!! How wonderful! Did you know that there is a 'condition' where some highly artistic people actually HEAR colors? And certain musical tones are visualized to them as an exact particular color? I just learned of this recently, and it's very intriguing. They say there's thousands of people with this type of heightened sensory perception...

and you have written a poem here which shows your heightened sensory awareness and the poem is beautiful! Thank you for sharing this.

*sigh* You left out my favorite color...
Where's the "Black"???  Guess I will have to write my own color (or colorless as the case may be) poem.

Seriously, you've have made the spectrum a palpable sensation here.  Not many people could achieve this with so much grace.  Wonderful poem, Angel.

Hi Angel,
no X about you my dear, only an angel could write of such beauty, you have painted such delight, thank you because gray tones seem to be were I am at, and this brightens everything up.
