Orange is October

I’m teaching a poetry workshop for homeschoolers this semester. This week’s assignment was to write a color poem using paint chips from Lowe’s and the figurative language we talked about in class. Just sharing the one I wrote as an example.

 

Orange is October

Orange grins like a jack-o-lantern
Glowing in the window.

Orange is candy corn,
Sugary sweet and grainy on my tongue.

Orange is the hiss and pop of bonfire embers
Dancing like flaming fairies in the wind.

Orange screams,
“Trick or Treat!”
