I placed a little red,
and then a little blue
when the clock ticked four;
My eyes startled and my fingers scanned,
through the scattered paint tubes and brushes,
till the tumbler vommed the water out,
the paper drenched in different hues,
and the teacher called the ‘time out!’

I placed a little red,
And then a little blue,
On an old canvas
With vision anew.
Easel steadied with hope,
Splash of shades so bright,
My canvas portrayed love
In a new serene light.

I placed a little red,
Then a little blue,
And there like magic,
Formed a purplish hue,
My brush tip quivered,
But I bid adieu,
To my fears,
And started my story, anew!

I placed a little red
And then a little blue
Slashed it all around
Till the blood dissipated
Into the tides’ hues
A burial at sea canvassed
Services to commemorate
Inexorable war’s plea.

I placed a little red
and then a little blue
it turned into a bird
and out it flew
the name is Fisher
King Fisher, it chirped
on its return
to its precious perch

Title – Masterpiece

I placed a little red,
And then a little blue.
Hoping I’d make;
A portrait of you!
But no matter how hard I tried,
Nothing seemed to come through!
For I could never create on canvas,
The exquisite masterpiece that is you!

kirti_santosh

I placed a little red
And then a little blue,
And watched it turn
To a beautiful hue.
The colors made the canvas bright,
Just like how the colors of love
Make our life shine bright,
Just like a treasure trove.

I placed a little red 
and then a little blue
Fussing in my head
flossing out in hues
Crafted dissimilitude
in a state of blissful quietude
Gazing at verisimilitude
of picturesque life with finitude.

I placed a little red
And then a little blue
Mixed it with white hope
Then poured yellow innocence
Blended them with a brush of green maturity
Kept it in the grey grown pallet
Finally dipped the brush in glossy black time
And created the blank canvas of life.

I placed a little red,
And then a little blue.
Now drips off the canvas
a color, all new.
My body being the canvas,
Experiences being the hue.
Red on the inside,
On the outside, painted all new.

momtherhustler

I placed a little red
Then a little blue
I could see his mind whirring
Captivated by the hue
He then, placed a little yellow
Then a little green
His mind now entirely curious
What colour had he seen?

myworldofwords20

I placed a little red
And then a little blue
Coloring my life in a bright, warm happy hue
Soon drab browns and creams bathed me too
Contemplating them, came the quiet realization
It’s not only the brightest that bring celebration
They too serve to complete our life’s rainbow,
That are quiet and light, allowing bright to show


vaishalee10

I placed a little red and then a little blue,
And between the greens and yellows a new design emerged before I knew.
The floor was filled with color bright,
And the nights were aglow with fairy lights.
This was first Diwali without our dear one,
His Jaguar had crashed on a maintenance sortie run.
Our promise to him still rung in my ears,
To celebrate his life, ‘the show will go on’ despite our tears.

I placed a little red,
And then a little blue,
right amount of  sweetness in my fondant to chew,
Stars glittering in the shield embedded,
Three tier in your favorite chocolate flavor,
I know every bite you will savor,
After a lot heat and sweat to meet,
Your captain America themed cake is ready to eat.

mayankdhar

I placed a little red
and then a little blue
My canvas over that hill sparkling with dew
Bright sunshine amongst those grey clouds
This gauntlet unexpected which they found
This chirping of birds, an acceptance of my brush
My pallete of colors and me
Nothing better it could ever be.

glittersofthought

I placed a little red
and then a little blue
shades of raw emotions
with necessary sadness
mixed bright shades of contentment
with some pastel tears
strokes of prayers, hope and dreams to
complete the painting

sheetal.ashpalia

I placed a little red,
And then a little blue,
A mesmerizing hue,
In front of me grew,
The colors in hand though few,
Turned into a shade new,
One which I never knew,
If you know, please gimme a clue!

MY MASTERPIECE
I placed a little red
And then a little blue
Green, yellow and pink
And the empty canvas erupted with colors.
My bold brushstrokes slowly brought to life
My artistic imagination
Creating a masterpiece
Hitherto unparalleled.

mindfullearningwithparna

I placed a little red
and then a little blue
Soon did I see it to a great cue
In the world of colors which turn to picturesque
As the colors merge they seem to communique
To the paradigm of travelogue
Where the universe whispers hope
and Faith for all in an Avenue

anamika703

I placed a little red,
Then a little blue,
On my pencil a moment I did chew!
As I wondered what I next wanted to-
For the colors of Love
Drenched me from above
From my crown to teeny toe,
Joy, Love and Bliss seep into every pore!

umakiyer

I placed a little red
and then a little blue,
a dab of yellow-green
a swish of brown-grey hue
Red became the sun
& blue the seas
Supreme Creator’s World was done
and now He was pleased.

I placed a little red
And then a little blue,
To create a new shade
Of both red and blue.
Yes! I got purple, but it’s little dark
Mix few drops of white to make it light
Now its too light adding more red and blue
To make a paper alive is not an easy choice.

tuddu21

I placed a little red,
And then a little blue,
I rolled my fingers and it turned hue,
Oh yes! It was the color of my shoe,
Which dad bought me new,
Then I added a little bit of white,
Which made the previous color light,
And I got my favorite colors sight.

shashikalagadepally

I placed a little red, And then a little blue,
the dazzling red and the soothing blue
the rising sun and the serene sky,
the rise and fall of the waves
the impish fish and the playful Dolphin
popping up here, prancing there
vibrant, vivacious, invigorating
paints on the canvas akin to life.


coach_venkat

I placed a little red
And then a little blue
I put together the colors I knew
Amazed at the wonders of hue
But for all these colored paint
Life would look like full of taint
Only with a nice color filled crest
Are our lives at their colorful best

Thank you to all the participants and congratulations to the winners!
