Imperial, Graceful, or Doom

Karmic Shades

A pocket full of doom

That’s all he was to me

She’d think in tones

Shades of greys and red

Once I believed in tones as well

Ochres, ceruleans, and emeralds

These were the contributions

Of auras and earthen energies

Paradigms creating seismic shifts

Have downsized our living arrangements

Everything comes around, these days more often than not

She thought as he perused her figure and discarded her clarity

For want of the value in it

Her figure


By Joshua Stitt on Unsplash

She walked away in colors of

Peace that dripped in tones of an inappropriate and false approximate weighing of values

He let it slide as she did

To the floor

For a moment the colors bled bleak

By Jené Stephaniuk on Unsplash

She thought of him in colors and shades of hope

(I know I know man loves woman and girl loves boy but sometimes they do)

More often than not

She let herself believe in love

For a moment in brilliant hues

A poem. A poet. Of sorts.

The colors shifted shades and shapes

By engin akyurt on Unsplash


Blue and grays with some reds and yellows thrown in


In lighters shades with purples turning lilac and blues into ceruleans and greens into limes

Brilliance and Consummations

Red and scarlets and burgandy complimented by shades of black and dark grey, all colors saturated real and true

Realisms and altruisms come in

All colors shapes shifts and shades

To some a mutiny of thoughts

To her?

Something to be construed.
