Call Me Gray

d’Verse Poets Pub – Poetics: True Colours?
Mish wants to know what the colors say

Call Me Gray

You think you can ignore me because
I’m gray
But I am many shades and tints,
like clouds
I am the background of your colorful life
me blues would not be as vibrant, yellows would have no
and the color wheel would be nothing but
a blur

A new poetic form from me

“This week, a Poetic Asides member shared a poetic form she created. While I don’t usually share nonce forms, I’ve tried this one myself, and I think it’s a lot of fun. So without further ado, I’m introducing Candace Kubinec’s form, the Waltmarie (which is itself a nod to PA members and Poetic Bloomings hosts, Marie Elena Good and Walter J. Wojtanik).” Robert Lee Brewer on Poetic Asides, 2/12/21

Waltmarie Poetic Form-
10 line poem, any subject, even numbered lines are 2 syllables and form their own poem when read separately. Odd lines are longer with no specific syllable count.

  1. Love this especially; “Without me blues would not be as vibrant, yellows would have no purpose.” Most definitely! 😀


  2. Good morning, Candy, I’m back to read and comment! Thank you for introducing me to your new form, I love writing 10-line poems, so this will be one to try, I love all shades of grey (call me monochrome), and I love your poem. It’s so true, without grey ‘the color wheel would be nothing but a blur’.
