NaPoWriMo 2020 – Day 28 – “Eyes All the Colours of the World” by David Ellis – A Found Poem Inspired by “Colors Passing Through Us” by Marge Piercy

Hey there everyone.

I’m participating in NaPoWriMo 2020, if you aren’t following the NaPoWriMo website already then go check it out at www.napowrimo.net.

Today I have used the most exquisite and beautiful poem as my inspiration for my found poem, I immediately fell in love with it the moment I read it!

You can read the poem that I used as inspiration here, written by the enormously talented Marge Piercy.

Read “Colors Passing Through Us” by Marge Piercy over at Poetry Foundation

Finally, here is my own romantic found poem, thank you for reading and good luck with all of your NaPoWriMo adventures throughout this month!

“Eyes All the Colours of the World” by David Ellis

Purple tulips, lush velvet
On lips, on hands
Warm as cinnamon
Roses tumbling
Their perfumed fruit, hanging
A bouquet, a song
Of all the things you praise
The depth of you, is as wine
Sipping from each other’s arms
Eyes all the colours of the world
Our bodies, of fire
