Word Prompt help creativity- Week 25

Brenda our dear friend and an excellent poet herself, encourages us with word prompts every week and we have to come up with something creative using this word prompt. Last week the word prompt was ‘Blue’. Despite my best effort, I could not submit my response on schedule. I almost gave up as my muse went blank, and then as if by providence, an idea struck and I was able to awaken my muse to come up with something creative. So here is my poem on the word prompt ‘blue’ and I hope Brenda and my friends like it.

We all know that the color blue is associated with calmness, serenity and peacefulness. The darker shades of blue are associated with honesty, integrity, competence, thoughtfulness, intelligence, trustworthiness and self-control.

I am an avid nature lover and the sight of the clear blue sky and the waters of the blue sea always induce a sense of peace and serenity in me. I can spend hours just gazing at the blue sky on a bright day and wondering what mysteries the universe holds.

The sky is an infinite movie to me. I never get tired of looking at what’s happening up there

— K. D. Lang

About the Poem

We have often heard the phrase ‘Paint the town red’ meaning excitement, party wildly, celebrate. Red is the vibrant color associated with vitality and passion. Often when people are in a celebratory mood, they like to go out and party with friends and have fun which is when this phrase is used. Here I have used the same metaphor in my Poem with the color blue. In the poem our mind is compared to the sky. Thoughts of uncertainty, despair are like clouds which mar the clear blue sky. When these clouds move away, we can see the clear blue sky again. The sight of the clear blue sky induces a sense of calmness, serenity. Likewise, when we clear our minds of negative thoughts, we feel more relaxed and calmer

Only from the heart can you touch the sky.

Poem-Paint your Sky Blue-Response to Brenda’s Word Prompt-Week 25

Your mind is like a sky

Paint your sky blue

It is the color of hope

Let not the clouds of despair

Ruin your beautiful sky

The clouds are not here to stay

They will soon float away

Your beautiful blue sky is

Always there for you.

A clear blue sky

Puts the heart at ease

Thank god for this day

For this clear blue sky.

Our mind is a limitless sky and we can only be an albatross flying in the vast expanse to occasionally discover the joys of sublimity

— Avijeet Das

Paint your sky blue

Allow peace and joy in

Let the mind be calm and serene

And chase the untoward thoughts away.

Paint your sky blue

Blue represents kindness

Blue represents inner peace

Gift yourself calmness

Gift yourself warmness

Make the sky yours

By painting it with blue

Let love light your whole sky

Let your soul and spirit fly

When in doubt see the blue sky

You will see truth, you will see life

You will see the face of god shine high.
