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.

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



Yellow on Blue

Pearlz Dreaming

Splashes of yellow on blue
softness of memory day’s hues


Those were the days of bird watching
capturing journeys out to waves


These are the days remembering blue
souls return to  a beach view

Seeing What is Really There?

waiting for the eclipse
Ocean Gazing – June Perkins

His favourite colour is to be found in the ocean
but yesterday he realised it was not always blue
but green & grey
pink & blue
& it depended on
the way the light was reflected
& he then began drawing the
ocean all its colours
& then found out
a flame was not yellow.
