Stellar Guest Post by Adrian King. Read her visualisation of a life in colour.

I am delighted to introduce you to Adrian King today, a writer and poet from California.

She has shared with us a poem defining life events, emotions and humanity in a hue of colour.


Nicola x



We’re all colored and drawn upon
By the Creator that gave us life.
Black velvet for when we have vanished and gone
Cherry for when we have strife.

Navy for when we are feeling smart
Indigo when we have might
Charcoal for when we’re torn apart
Dandelion yellow if we’re feeling bright.

Cerulean blue for creative thinking
Bubblegum for D-I-Ys
Sea foam for athletic stretching
Coral for asking “why?”

Scarlet for increasing embarrassment
Carnation pink for birth.
Blue violet for harassment
Pink flamingo for trying to be first.

White for a subtle palate cleanser
Olive signifying growth
Midnight blue for the occasional offender
Each and every color matters most.

If one color is to sum up all of me
Then I’d be pretty shallow
I am every color, can’t you see?
Not just single-shaded callow.

  4. Wow. I don’t know why I should be surprised that Adrian is only 13 because talent comes in all shapes and sizes, and ages! Adrian certainly has plenty of talent and I wish her well in what can only be a very successful life.
