Random Poem:


Blue sought the sapphire
and the crater's lake
While Green craved
limes and grass. Red
lusted for rubies and blood
and Yellow the yolk of the egg.
Cyan adorned the Caribbean
and Violet the north borealis,
Orange kissed the mango's meat
and preened the tangerine.
Bright white shattered diamonds of light
But onyx as Black
as the sky of the moon
is the Black that swallowed them all.
