Paint short poem

Today I feel like writing,
No pen, no quill, no ink.
Today I will write with colors
I will need a palatte.

Let’s use some bright blue,
Let the sky fill our soul.
Umber – no, use light brown,
Make it smell of fresh earth.

Will need some pink for the
Ballerinas dancing in my mind.
And don’t forget the yellow,
Daffodils make me happy.

In the sky a spot of orange,
A balloon floating to heaven.
A rich, rich green to
Make you smell the trees.

Put your fingers in the paint.
Join the fun, spread it around.

What color are you today?

Love the ‘what color are you” in the end, inviting me to choose my mood and disposition.
