Blaze of colors

A blaze of colors smeared across my heart.
The strokes of an unskilled hand,
uneven and splotchy.
The hues, all vibrant, vivacious.
The oranges mixing with reds
and purples and pinks,
with tiny little sequins littered here and there.
Wide eyed, I watch as this masterpiece
is splashed across the sunset skies
exclusively for me, every single night.
And then everything in the pallette blends,
swirling across the canvas.
The enchanting moments
fusing and merging
until I can't separate one from another.
Misty eyed, I watch
as the muted brilliance
slowly turns to a
subtle pink and mild, soft gold.

  1. This is VERY beauiful! I can imagine all the colors swirling and fusing into different beautiful colors and how it becomes more beautiful to you. Excellent!! Welcome to Flash Fiction for Aspiring Writers! I'm glad you found us and hope to read future writing from you.

    1. Thank you for inspiring me with such kind and warm words.

  2. Beautiful imagery. I am a painter and I can really just picture an artist painting this. Your descriptions in the poem or so lovely. Great job.
