Rain on Me — NaPoWriMo day 28 — color

Recent days’ sun
Flame yellow —
Hotly invisible —
Washing color out of everything
Turning trees white and grass pale grey

I’m longing for tangy pinks
And juicy greens
Heavy, hearty tangerine
Drownable, wavy blue
And painful, plaintive purple

One cloud-coated day
for yearning, earthly
Fingerling roots
to ease color back
Into sight.
