Today, we revisit the second letter of the alphabet, and our word for today is “brown.” You wouldn’t know it from my own poem below, but I love the color brown. The richness of its various hues provides warmth and comfort. And, let’s face it, coffee and chocolate are brown: my two, favorite food groups! Look within your muse and follow wherever “brown” leads you.
A BROWN POINT OF VIEW
A landscape, barren of vegetation,
sits dry, empty and brown.
A river, pounded relentlessly
by an unforgiving rain,
overflows, is muddy and brown.
A heart, devoid of rich soil
for planting the seeds of love
and the waters needed for growth,
is lonely, shriveled and brown.
