Weekend Writing Prompt #16 – Colours

colours

I woke up and the sun’s bright yellow
Happy to start the day
I wore my blue jeans, more like marines
Went to market, bought my greens and whey

Swam in a pool with blissful white foam
Then met my friend for coffee
More like marines, I wore my blue jeans
Had red tea then went for shopping spree

Indigo and violet ice-cream
And she peels her orange fruit
I wore my blue jeans, more like marines
Then we went for our afternoon scoot*
