The colorful turmoil

Before you drown in slumber,

as you lie in bed,

close your eyes and turn inside,

right inside your head.

You shall see the vibrancy,

the eye dazzling scenes,

of colors merging in your thoughts,

tranquil and serene.

The yellows those have made your day,

with greens that are alone,

the reds that make you lovable,

the blues that make you moan.

However, can they fade away,

can someday say goodbyes,

but always do they brighten up,

and dazzle up the skies.

No matter what the colors are,

let your eyes bleed and uncoil,

into your inner universe:

the colorful turmoil.

‘ The colorful turmoil ‘ – my watercolor painting that forms the base of this poem.

    Our eyes say so much about us, and what we are thinking and feeling. Gorgeous and filled with lovely metaphors. ❤️💕 love Joni

      Oh my Joni you just keep on making the week even better. That is such a wonderful compliment. I’m so glad you like the metaphors that go into the painting and the work. It was one of my first art works that explored color( I’m usually the black n white guy) and I am so glad that it came out well enough to earn your sweet words. The day can’t get any better. Thank you.
      Yours,
      Shanyu.

        They grow wild all over NC and when they are in bloom the air smells of a sweetness that is difficult to describe. Buckets of them for you. Hugs dear friend for you and all your family. Joni 💕❤️
