DVerse’s Poetics prompt is to write from the perspective of a color. I suppose this poem will do. 🙂
My gray marker sees
Mostly, the inside of a box,
Filled with other, brighter colors.
He feels jealousy
When his friends get to adventure,
Get to lend their color
To flowers, hearts, and any manner
Of design. Resigned,
He waits — yet feels grateful
When I color the cats:
He is amazing at that!
The gray marker gets a starring role here.
