Color Your World… shocking pink.

This is just perfect.

I’m sitting on my cozy sofa… drinking my twelfth cup of coffee (lost count)… 15 inches of snow outside so far (still coming down)… fantasizing about spring. (And, who am I kidding…? fantasizing about all sorts of things…) And today we have shocking pink… for which I have the perfect photo from last spring.

And a tiny poem from now.

I’m waiting for the bitter cold to go
From inside me, from the outside snow…
I’m hoping when it’s gone you’ll bring
The warmth, the love, the color of spring.

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.

    What a pretty poem and picture!
    Unfortunately, my depression tends to be at its worst in the spring, so I kind of dread the season.

  9. I adore cherry blossoms! That’s a gorgeous tree!!
    Shocking pink is a damn fine colour, it suits me very well. Quite a contrast to my usual dark attire.

    Loved the poem, wonderfully whimsical 💕
