The color fib

Red,
white,
blue, green
hue. Yellow,
cinnabar, maroon,
cyan, ocher and pink pink moon.
Anthracite and black,
but there’s im-
minent
li-
lac.

– Leonard Blumfeld

Colors with admixture of Nick Drake's Pink Moon song and the coming of spring in lilac.
A perfect fit for One Single Impression's "color" prompt.

I enjoyed the vowel rhyme! That's something different for us this week! The words themselves are poems, too.

I love that you employed a rhyme scheme to this and a shape with the color fonts added. This is like looking at a painting.
