Color Wheel

Color Wheel

written by: Mike Turner



Summer’s blaze illuminates us
Azure vault and cotton clouds
Diamond flashes on cats-pawed wave
Slowly deepening
As Autumn’s hues arch overhead
Blazing crimsons, ripening oranges, shining golds
Then the paints begin to flake
Turning from soft vibrant linen
To crackling brown parchment
Leaving bare wooden frames
Where Nature’s canvas was recently stretched
And even as we enter solemn Winter
All gunmetal skies and ghostly flakes
We know that Spring will bring a new palette
The slow dabbing of a green leaf here
A yellow petal there
So that color will imbue our lives anew
