#OctPoWriMo 15 – Colors

Colors of the Kitchen


Orange, brilliant squash

Roasted to soft perfection

Green, fragrant sage

Picked fresh from the garden

Yellow, true butter

Flavorful in the mix

Brown, spicy cinnamon

And nutmeg ground

Pale, kneaded dough

From which pockets are formed and filled

Blue, bright platter on which the meal is served

Painstakingly created by hand



Hand-made butternut squash ravioli and this prompt from http://www.octpowrimo.com/2014/10/day-13-color-your-world.html inspired this poem.
