My Box of Colours

I have been given a box of such exquisite

colours to choose from.

Just look.

Dozens, hundreds, an entire spectrum.

So plentiful, so easy to share.

Go ahead: Dip your brush into the emerald,

take from the scarlet, the azure, the marigold.

Sample the vermilion, the verdigris.

The cool lavender also awaits.

The wells are deep. Paint your picture:

I still have more than I shall ever need

to paint my own.

Always be a poet. Even in prose.
Charles Baudelaire.

In essence I am a storyteller who writes poems. Put simply, I write the poems I want to read.[…]
