Think Pink (w/painting by Jan!) April 11, 2010

Posted by nrhatch in Humor, Poetry, Writing & Writers.

I got up today
In the usual way
And readied myself to think

I looked outside
And there I spied
Bits and pieces of pink

A pink raft in the pool
What a great tool
For floating around in the drink

Swirling round and round
With nary a sound
A raft won’t let you sink

A woman wandered by
Her head held high
Carrying a beach towel of pink

The color so bright
I stared in delight
Wanting one to hang by my sink

A short distance away 
More color filled the day . . .   
A woman sporting a visor of pink

She sat on a beach chair
With nary a care
Sipping a tall, cool drink

Imagine my surprise
When with my own eyes
I saw yet another flash of pink

I had unknowingly worn
A pink shirt this morn
Pink . . . it just makes you think

I like this quite a bit, and also appreciate you bringing Jan and her work into it.

Nicely done.

Your timing is amazing. I put on something pink today and thought about what a pretty color it is. I’ve had a hard time with pink… didn’t want to be perceived too feminine years ago and then, a tough time putting on the pink t-shirt when I became a survivor. Now, I’m really okay with it. Pink is a lovely color.

Thanks, Tammy.

I’ll probably never dress from head to toe in pink . . . but I find splashes of pink here and there delightful.

And I wanted to share Jan’s painting with readers.
