my many colored days

i was inspired by a facebook post my friend, cayla wrote yesterday. she quoted the great dr. seuss book, My Many Colored Days: "gray day. everything's gray. I watch, but nothing moves today." at first i didn't catch on that it was from his book, and then it hit me finally...

i definitely agree with the book...colors are so often associated with moods and emotions. so i decided to do a little fashion/emotion take on this thoughtful book.

on bright red days how good it feels to be a horse and kick my heels

on other days i'm other things. on bright blue days i flap my wings

some days of course feel sort of brown. then i feel slow and low, low down.

then comes a yellow day and whee, i am a busy, buzzy bee

gray day....everything is gray. i watch. but nothing moves today.

then all of a sudden i'm a circus seal. on my orange days that's how i feel.

green days. deep, deep in the sea. cool and quiet fish. that's me.

on purple Days i'm sad. i groan. i drag my tail. i walk alone.

but when my days are happy pink it's great to jump and just not think.

then come my black days. MAD. and loud. i howl. i growl at every cloud.

then comes a mixed-up day. And WHAM! i don't know who or what i am!

but it all turns out all right, you see. and i go back to
