To a WP-VOF Costume Party

I shall come with a handpainted
Face. Soft brushes of colors
Outrageous. Red of hibiscus, bronze
And green of lizard skin.

I shall wear antique clothes
Purpled darkly in the swirling
Twilight. This hair scrunched
By a dozen-fingered wind.
Laughter bellowing, my musty years-old cloak.
For a prop, Li, the real
Gentle orphan black cat.

But they will never see what
I carefully hide: broomstick
Of thoughts with which I often travel
And trespass the forbidden passageways,
Cauldron in this brewing heart,
Passion fresh gold as hot tea.

Into the door, I shall walk
Without caution, dressed fully
As Myself.

Colours scintillate

Hi Libudsuroy,

You bring colours and a feeling magically to life and it comes across effortless.
