Paint Chip Poetry: blue and black

January 4, 2016

Paint Chip Poetry is a project inspired by an artist colleague who suggested using the paint samples found in hardware stores to inspire mini-poems, beginnings of fiction, haikus, surrealism, fantasy, word-play. 

In France they say fait accompli, in Japan, they write haiku

Listen to the sooty teapot whistle seaweed steam

Wind play world’s away

Mykonos, the city on a blue lace shore

Figure in a curtain when the north wind blows / window shut, tempest rages

Electro eye blink, a melody in a wink

I dream of a cottage on an island in the berry blue bay / and rock with the porcelain white tops / my deeper sea beckons.

The woman at the wetbar calls herself harmony she has cocoa skin in the shape of a vase walks sultry like everglades in a florida summer

from ocean to sea, the chagres river delivered our greed

aqua lotus botanical bliss
