#TankaTuesday Weekly Poetry Challenge No. 272: #Tastetherainbow-Color Poetry.

Β© Colleen Chesebro

🌈 Taste the Rainbow refers to colors. You do not have to write about a rainbow in your poem. Just include a color in your poem. 🌈

I hsve chosen to write a Nonet. A Nonet poem has nine lines, with nine syllables in the first line decreasing to one syllable in the last line. The subject of my poem is Synaesthesia . Synaesthesia,Β the neurological condition that causes a blending of the senses – colours can be connected to letters and numbers, smells and tastes to music or touch to vision – has long been linked to creativity: famous synaesthetes include Sibelius and more recently Pharrell Williams and Lady Gaga.


The colours flew off of him like
Warm hues of luxurious blue
Cosy bright sunshine yellows
White lines of energy
Enhanced her. She
Told him, he
Said, me

    Willow, I had to look up Synaesthesia. Here’s what I found: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Synesthesia. Very interesting condition. Your poem is perfect for this phenomenon. Well done! ❀

    Very nice take on the rainbow of colors. Some claim to see auras of people. I would like to think my own aura would be inviting, calming and creative πŸ˜‰ As yours must be!
