Rose-colored Glasses

An old favorite…fits perfectly with this prompt!


Subtle shades of pink

soften the edges

in a black and white world


Streaks of vibrant salmon

dance across stormy skies

in the midst of chaos


A rush of crimson

decorates chapped faces

in the coldest winter mornings


Cuddly carnation blankets

swathe crying babies

in the in-between hours of dusk and dawn


Sweet cherry Lifesavers

shared between young girls

in the gestures that comfort


Endless fields of poppies

celebrate the wonder of creation

in the face of sorrowful destruction


Rose-colored glasses

frame my endeavors

in all that I do


I live in a pink hued world

and leave the black and white

  1. Wonderful poem and reblog. You are right very much fits Lambert’s “Pink Sunglasses.” She’s coming here on October so I’m crossing my fingers I can find tickets still. We’ll see thanks for participating, another one coming this Friday if you like 🙂
