color: a limerick.

I almost didn’t post a limerick this week… but this morning, after little sleep, on a post-it note by the bed, I wrote this in probably less than a minute. I guess it came to me in my (unable-to) sleep.


Is red or pink the color of love?
In sadness, is it blue you think of?
Are envy and jealousy green?
What do your colors mean?
My soul is black, none of the above.


Mind and Life Matters limerick poetry challenge – prompt: color

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy, too. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.

  5. Haha, wonderful. I didn’t write one this week, so unless I think of one immediately, I’m probably too late.
