In its calming nature

Teal has a way of being both

Strong and assertive

yet subtle and meek.


Associated with ocean shores

Peacocks and Echeveria elegans.

It balances between green and blue

Aqua and Turquoise.


Teal in its many shades

works in any situation

on any surface.

For clothes and walls

Teal emulates decency and renovation.


A combination of Blue and Green’s traits

Teal promotes clarity, 

open communication, 

and practical thinking when in its presence.


When in Teal’s company

I feel at ease and comforted in knowing 

I am capable of anything.

    Felt good to read.

    Teal - a colour which has found it's way into Australian politics. The persons who fly under that colour are young, female and independent. More power to them.
    Your usual good and competent write - Thanks

    PS: You always welcome comments, yet never respond to them. Would be nice to know if my responses hit the mark.....

      such a cool response! I didn’t know that, thanks for sharing

        In terms of my remark about responding to other comments - it depends what you want out of your postings here. If you want as many people to read your stuff as possible, then you should aim to respond at every opportunity. This because this is recorded in the activities column and brings your work to more people's notice... If, however you just pin your poetry here and don't care if anyone reads it, then good luck...
        Take care of yourself.
