I have this theory about color. If you’d like it explained, check out “Paint Theory!” To see the photos that accompany this poem, click on “View Original Post” below the poem.
(For dVerse Poets, “Theory.”)
Nature abounds in color.
On everything in sight,
the only colors you won’t see
are boring black and white.
Yet minimalists love what’s spare:
black and white and gray.
A splash of colorhere andthere
is enough, they say.
I agree restraint is best
where decorating goes.
There should be some rules
concerning where paint flows.
On walls and cabinets and floors,
on doorknobs, furniture and doors,
The only place where you should paint
is anywhere where pigment ain’t!

The Prompt word today was “Paint.”
