The challenge at dVerse this week is a lovely one of Colour and there is nothing more colourful to me right now than the coming of our summer (yes, even including the drying grasses and soil!). So, firstly, thank you, Victoria for a great prompt and secondly....
Jacarandas splash their gentle accent against a cobalt sky,
Cicadas chirrup in pale sienna, against the wheaten rye.
With washes of vibrant intensity, the sun calls forth each hue...
and the warmth shines through.
Gum trees soak the canvas now, in swirls of olive green,
with bark of burnt sienna and deepest ultramarine.
They soften as they touch the sky, diffuse amongst the blue...
and the light shines through.
Parrots cry their freedom in brilliant rainbow ease,
With gorgeous accents here and there, they braid the sky and trees.
They mingle with the softer edge, but keep their colours true...
and the life shines through.
The atmosphere sings golden in the sun's aureolin glow,
it warms every pigment that it touches high or low.
As it spreads throughout the land, it wakens life anew...and the summer shines through.
