Watercolors spilled out,
washing the pale canvas
with unanticipated hues.
Bristles lazily strayed through
streams of ermine, citron topaz
and a splash of cobalt:
a rainbow
lost on this horizontal plain.

Oooh, I am a sucker for color. I'm a professional artist so this really appealed to me. Nicely done!

Hi Charity--great use of color and action here. I liked that all of the verbs that make me of a river, in a full spectrum of colors. Thanks for sharing!
