Rainbow

rainbow led sign

Violet diamonds
Concealed costly lingerie
Amethyst necklace
Candy scent couture perfume
Ruby hue stiletto boots

Short pink rayon skirt
Triple garter thigh high socks
I hope you miss this
Red lipstick, black eyeliner
Heart savors your hungry stare

Gaze across green grass
Palpable distance between
Secretly want you
Inhale blue, exhale panic
Cool counterfeit countenance

woman with blonde hair and red lipstick

Written for Tanka Tuesday Weekly Poetry Challenge #283: Taste the Rainbow.

What is tanka? From the Poetry Cheat Sheet: “5-7-5-7-7 syllable structure, or s-l-s-l-l. Tanka consists of 5 lines written in the first-person point of view from the perspective of the poet. The third line is considered your β€œpivot,” but let it happen anywhere, or exclude it. It is not mandatory. If you use a pivot, the meaning should apply to the first two lines, as well as the last two lines of your tanka. Tanka is untitled and do not rhyme.”
