Paint Me Beautiful

Paint Me Beautiful

From the eye, color streaks
as imagination paints -
bronze toned beaches
beneath an ivory sky
as silver ripples whisper
Sabah al kheer !

Mesmerizing and tranquil
marble waters shimmer.
Orchid and red-violet
stream through the billows
to greet with a warm
Bonjour !

A dash of cerulean
pinch of carnelian
placed neatly in a bed of white.
Kneaded gently by the hands
that howl,
Good morning !

Reflection -
and the magical kiss of
pink frost and icy shorelines.
Crisp mountain air speaks
breathe -inhale, exhale-
Rise and shine !

From -
our deepest thoughts,
to a palette,
through a brush,
perhaps a pen and poetic strokes
-to beauty-

Eye colors may differ,
yet all see the same!
Color of skin,
nationality,
personality
all different.

- Yet -
we all wake
beneath the same rising sun ...
Good morning World !
Sabah al kheer, Bonjour, Good morning, Rise and shine

    Good Morning, Dear. Very clever concept. True brilliance. As I read each stanza, was "mesmerized" myself by the beautiful descriptions. Each capturing the reader with the imagery. Well done, dear friend.

    Always,

    Vivid imagery. It is inspirational to imagine these far away places our cyber friends are from.

    ^Mesmerizing and tranquil

    Orchid and red-violet

    to greet with a warm

    Beautiful word choice and the incorporation of another language again. Very unique.

    ^A dash of cerulean
    pinch of carnelian
    placed neatly in a bed of white.

    Gorgeous imagery here. I love your choices from the list of colors.

    ^Reflection -
    and the magical kiss of
    pink frost and icy shorelines.
    Crisp mountain air speaks
    breathe -inhale, exhale-
    Rise and shine !^

    Again, it is nice to see at the end of the stanza a different greeting.

    ^From -
    our deepest thoughts,
    to a palette,
    through a brush,
    perhaps a pen and poetic strokes
    -to beauty-^

    It is something the picture painting imagery of the mind.

    ^Eye colors may differ,
    yet all see the same!
    Color of skin,
    nationality,
    personality
    all different.^

    We all watch the same sun, moon and stars. I really like this stanza. It means to me that beauty is diverse. Just beautiful.

    ^- Yet -
    we all wake
    beneath the same rising sun ...
    Good morning World !
    Sabah al kheer, Bonjour, Good morning, Rise and shine
    Friends ...^

    What an excellent ending. Vivid imagery throughout the piece. You did the pictures justice!
    It was well thought out, clever and unique. Great job!

    This is a poetic triumph, Luanne.

    The tone of morning is a suitable one, the feeling of optimism, of a new day; a warm greeting. I feel the image of morning works well in this piece, and the various images you paint are well crafted. It exudes themes of friendship without being too spoon-feeding.

    'bronze toned beaches
    beneath an ivory sky
    as silver ripples whisper'

    If you take your three colours here; I don't think they blend as well as they could. Since they're imporant to establish this scene, I think that 'ivory' disagrees with the 'bronze', you also have 'bronze' and 'silver', I think it'd be a nice touch to have 'under a golden sun', so you get all three of those related colours.
    Just an idea, hah.

    I don't think this stanza, though:

    'Eye colors may differ,
    yet all see the same!
    Color of skin,
    nationality,
    personality
    all different.'

    Serves a purpose, other than to spoon-feed. Just an opinion, but if you took it out, it wouldn't make a difference to the poem.

    I shan't pick this apart, but it's another well written piece from you. Well done. :)
