A Naga Uta* about 'colors' - explanation of form included.
I shall not feel blue,
nor will the green of envy
set in this fleshed soul.
Let the orange of the sun
color my long days
with its bright yellow sunbeams.
Let my days fill with
hibiscus so red and full,
aglow in the sun;
and small dahlias so purple.
Spring forth pink tulips,
each tipped with dainty white lace.
My days shall then bloom
with colors of the rainbow,
and welcome the black of night.

*The Naga Uta (a Japanese form of poetry) is written with as many lines as you choose. It is a syllabic poem; a variation of five and seven syllables per line. The lines vary in this order...5/7/5/7/5/7 etc., then always ending with...5/7/7; there is no rhyme required in the Naga Uta.

|Dear Jackie, thank you very much for your kind and silent visit to my Den.
I wandered thru your Den, and I allowed myself to read "A Colorful Day" as flowers and birds are my daily friends. I love their beauty and innocence. I don't care how you call it "The Naga Uta" or a single iota, what you expressed is more important. Love Emile
