Color Me Good | #OctPoWriMo Day 8

Two questions: One do you remember a R&B group from the 90s called Color Me Badd? I'm going to guess probably not, but now you know why the name of this post. Two: Did you know in the United States, often in hospitals the patient rooms are blues and blue-greens? It's because those muted shades promote the feeling of tranquility. Now that I think about it, I had a lot of classrooms with those colors also. I don't think the trick works as well with young kids, who may be a little hyper active.

I'm sure you've noticed it as well. Certain colors may make you happier when you see them. Maybe dark blue reminds you of your Aunt Tilda's dining room curtains. That's where you'd always eat supper when you visited as a child. It was one of your favorite childhood memories, because she always made the best dinner.

Write a poem talking about a color and your memories attached to it. Bring us along for the memory's journey.

 Remember, the prompts are just an option.

  4. Of course I remember Color me Badd! I was in my mid twenties when they were popular. I remember groups a lot older than they are too, seeing as I'm probably older than just about everything.

    2. I'm just glad there's people who remember them. Believe me, there are many circles where that reference would've been met with crickets.

  5. Fair warning today: my poem is about something really gross that actually happened to me yesterday. If you can't handle the creepy crawlies, don't read it.
