A Color Me Thursday Poem

Sherwin Williams

 The Bakery Shop;
 colorful business management**

Flirty Fuscia
Worked in her kitchen all day long
Kept the pastries warm, "freshly baked"
When it's time to go home, alone
Owners don't mingle with the help

Girl Rapture Blue
Waited tables all day long, ask?
What's a nice girl like you doing,
The answer's "here", clear. Mind the floors,
at night.  Make ends meet, second job

and her dog,
Scarlet Maple
The lady, her dog, come at night
Customer delight, buys half price
No one knows for sure after there
They sleep all day and do at night
Their donut start
Heaven Sent
Triple Berries,
Rain at Night

 - Photo was Margaret furnished, it is of a color chart photo she posted at the link above and suggested that we use the names of at least five colors found in her post in our writing for today.  I used them as the four characters, dog included, and three more for my Senryū  ending.

clever and unique rendition of this palette - I love the characters you painted and the combination in your senryu ending

the sights and sounds (and people) of a bakery shop. It would make a fascinating (comedy?) series on TV!
