Writing Challenge, day 10.

(I wrote yesterday too, just not here). Prompt from Sarah today:

What’s your favorite color? 

Write a love letter or a poem to your favorite color. The catch? Do the entire thing without ever naming the color itself in the piece. 

It bands the Earth around the middle.

It’s the non-absorbed light giving most plants their signature appearance.

It can be seasonal for some.

We almost take it for granted, as a medium we move through and exist in.

Being out in it is peaceful, meditative.

It’s something all humans need to protect for our own good as well as the Earth’s.
