Aliens Are Coming

The aliens have landed.
they're full of laughter and mirth.
They're changing up the colors
for a more colorful earth.

I can't tell my mother.
I won't tell my dad
for to mention these aliens
they'll both say I am bad

To be telling these lies
and making these stories up.
But the aliens are in my backyard
because tall pink grass is growing up.

     See, I'm still working on poems about colors.  Crazy.  But I put my pen to paper and this is what comes out.  Put your pen to paper today and see what comes out.  Let your imagination run where ever it wants to skip.  Nothing has to be real or factual.  See where your penning takes you.  Have a happy Sunday writing your own poem.


  1. Joy,
    This was delightful. Do you really have tall pink grass--ornamental? I could see it there. I wonder what those aliens will color next! Maybe I'll find out tomorrow. I hope so.

    1. Hey Linda, I too have been trying to think of what the aliens would color next. I came up with gold roads--but that didn't seem original enough. I just need to find some NEW colors.

  2. SO delightful. I love the image of the aliens making the world more colorful. I want to paint it!

    1. Oh, please do try painting aliens with pink grass. Send me a picture, I'd love to see what you come up with.
