color//colour pink

monday's pink
monday's pink 
was all bubblegum 
and pink flamingos
and mostly, pretend

tuesday's pink
tuesday's pink
had nothing to do 
with parking

wednesday's pink
wednesday's pink
was a love letter
to bright pink hair 
and the sweetest pink vintage dress 
and to the girl (my girl)
who wears both

thursday's pink
thursday's pink
was a little gem of a kitchen
that I think of all the time
(all the time)

friday's pink
friday's pink
was the soundtrack
that gave 15 year-old andrea
hope

saturday's pink
saturday's pink
was the last of the pink
and the last of the color//colour
but the beginning 
of the blooms
and so much
so much everything

(color//colour lovers twenty eighteen! fini)

(thank you, all you color//colour lovers out there, and thank you to my friend and terrific color-hunting partner in crime, xanthe)

  1. Pink is my favourite colour :) A colour project in winter is such a wonderful idea ! Thanks for sharing, I might try it too some day. I only started reading your blog recently and I am a big fan of your work in Uppercase Magazine - don't remember why but it took a while to find your blog and so glad I did find it after all!

  2. You alllways steal my heart away with the magic of what gets caught in your eyes. I don't know how you see so much that the rest of us take for granted until we see things through your eyes.
