Colors Affect Our Emotions • Poetry Prompt

This month I’d like you to think about how colors affect your emotions, or how they describe your emotions. You might want to explore what color might sound like, or taste like. You might even like to try to write an acrostic poem, with each line starting with the first letter of a chosen color, as I did in the three short poems below.

Breath of Life

Breath of Life

I put my hands gently on my lower ribs, and closed my eyes. Imagined God, in the Garden, breathing the breath of life into dust and bones. Imagined God’s breath deep within me, Pneuma, Holy Spirit, Breath of Life.
