I Color (Pink)

Updated on December 2, 2017

I’m frilly, I’m flirty.

I’m gentle and soft— the breath of a child against your neck. A flutter of kisses from your lover in the morning.

I’m a promise as smooth as the inside of a Chiragra spider shell, as clean and fresh as a kitten’s yawn.

Touch me, I’ll curl around your finger.

I’m a lullaby.

Catch me, I’ll quiver.

        Hi Diana. I wrote the poem as an exercise during a creativity class, titling it "What Color Am I?" All but one reader guessed pink, which made me think I'd done something right. Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Best, Jill

        This is a cute poem about pink and it is much easier to relate to then purple, yet both make you understand the value of color. Good job.
