Emma is the color of blood that seeps through an opened vein.
Abby is vanilla like melting ice cream in a bowl.
Nora is sepia like Grandma’s chestnut chifforobe.
Olivia is yellow like forsythia in spring.
Payton is coffee brown with cream and sugar added.
I am periwinkle peppered with neon pink.
We meet to paint on Wednesdays
and blend the colors of our lives.
