Lyric Fire: Wearing Pink On Tuesday – A Poem

This poem was originally featured on the BlogNostics website so some of my readers may not have seen it. I feel like running it again as I am approaching my birthday because I have vowed to do things that I love this week! Pink is one of my favorite colors and it’s Tuesday, so… Here is Wearing Pink on Tuesday. Enjoy! 


the lovely color seeped into my blood stream

causing a fuchsia-bomb of possibilities

my smile was liquid and flowed wide

exposing vanilla covered enamel

and a cherry red tongue

limbs were loose

stride was strong

hips were bouncing to their own beat

the sun shone on my crown

transforming its dimmed highlights

into a kaleidoscope of colors

birds sang sweet symphonies

while kittens meowed melodies

and wrapped themselves around my ankles

each step was like a milestone

conversations became fellowships

glances were awakenings

wearing pink on tuesday turned my hello world

into hallelujah and holla if you hear me!

what in the world would i wear on wednesday?
