Welcome to Verse First, where simple notions prompt amazing poems.
Colored can be so very simple: Having color or being colorful…. colored hair… colored lights… colored contact lenses.
But it can be complicated and sometimes offensive when referring to a person of color or telling an "off-colored" joke. Many a cheek has colored up in such situations.
Colored can indicate exaggeration or bias. We all know someone who shares highly colored accounts of events. And remember the gal who see's the world through rose colored glasses?
Lastly, we cannot forget the Crayola references. We have all colored within the lines, outside the lines and up a storm.
If none of these notions appeal, here are some brightly colored photos to spark your creativity:
