Beauty blind

A tritina for the Secret Keeper’s weekly five word prompt.

DANCE | INNER | BREAK | HUE | LOST

Daybreak colours, hard to place

When beauty springs in every hue

Yet fails to move hearts with its dance.

 

Leaf fall, bird flight bright colours dance;

Before the inner eye takes place

A pageant dressed in every hue.

 

I’d take a palette of each hue

And paint the feathers of the dance,

But who would see in this lost place?

 

Dead is the place where beauty’s hue is a forgotten dance.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.

      1. I saw a funny tableau in the park of one of Bordeaux’s main attractions. A group of benches full of boy scouts out on a tour of the city, all sitting in silence, staring at their phones. If I’d had mine on me I’d have taken a pic.
