Shades of moonlight on moss singing

Enchanting mermaid’s tail flicking colours of
fairytale and dreaming

Taste of Mission Beach rainforest tinted with sky

Textures of ocean seaweed woven into waves
of legend and changelings.

a colour inbetween
not quite green and not quite blue.

A mermaid not quite girl and
not quite mermaid.


Imagination wrapped in the sky of
summertime’s embrace.

A girl on a rock writing of memory
and dancing
moonlight blue and
emerald green.

(c) June Perkins

Using colour poem prompt from Joyce Sidman, this is my colour, synesthesia, poem.
