The evening aches, bleeding bright,
warbling notes in pink delight.
Pastel laughs peak and dive,
as children sing their crayons alive,
slithering shades with eggplant sighs,
that tamp down blue in seagull’s cries,
Indelible memories upon me dance,
doused complete in soft expanse,
sloshed from sea-sweet wine.
Today at dVerse Grace has asked us to write a poem inspired by the condition synesthesia. Grapheme colour synesthesia is the most widely studied and common type of synesthesia. An individual is able to associate number or letters with certain colours.
The writing challenge: Today we will write about color from the perspective of a synesthete. Pick one color or several colors. Create your own Dictionary of Color. All sounds have color. The alphabet has color. Days of the week have color. Each day has a color and a certain shape.
