Tincture Recall

Tincture Recall

Red are garden roses
Danger, life,
Rejected questions
Posed
Darker as crystalline rubies
Lighter as heat is rife
Paler as dawn is moody

Blue is the sky
Water, winter
Sad tears
Cried
Darker as the night time
Lighter as ribbons glitter
Paler as a tarnished dime

Yellow is that sun
Daisy, lightning
Quilt designs
Spun
Darker as olive branches
Lighter as a lemon ripening
Paler as near blanch

Green is all moss
Leaves, grass
Lake algae
Gloss
Darker as a pine’s needles
Lighter as stained glass
Paler as japanese beetles

Orange are the sparks
Warmth, fire
Fruit tree
Copse
Darker as a falling leaf
Lighter as copper wire
Paler as a thin motif

Purple are floating lilacs
Violets, robes
Exotic spices
Stacked
Darker as a flowing cape
Lighter as ancient globes
Paler as wax stamp’s shape

Brown is the dirt
Bark, roots
Natural things’
Worth
Darker as a leather sling
Lighter as coffee juice
Paler as an oak’s rings

Silver are earth minerals
Platinum, diamonds
Repeated ore
Intervals
Darker as a geode core
Lighter as deep iron mining
Paler as a sediment store

Gold are the rarities
Jewelry, idols
Boasting worth
Scarcity
Darker as a karat brand
Lighter as twilight idyll
Paler as a marriage band

Black is the dark
Shade, space
Indefinable esoteric
Marks
Darker as a void’s sailcloth
Lighter as an ebony trace
Paler as a cinder swath

White is the pure
Quartz, clean
Most attractive
Allure
Darker as ground sugar
Lighter as a cloud screen
Paler as an endless vigor
