Eighty one words

for Sammi’s Weekend Writing Prompt where the given word is Pavonine and the limit, 81 words..





Colourful as a Christmas tree, pavonine as a pantomime dame, radiant as a rainbow. Kaleidoscopically candescent, that’s Technicolour Trev! 

He’s a painter. He bedaubs his canvases with splashes, strokes, squiggles and squirts; a complete mess but somehow they come alive and excite all that view them.

I went to his gallery once. It took me ages to find him, he was so well camouflaged!

We probably appreciate his art even more than he does. It’s such a shame he’s colour blind.

    A colourful take on the prompt. I especially love ‘pavonine like a pantomime dame’.

      Thanks so much. As pantomimes are a somewhat British institution, I wondered if it would work with an international readership!

        I’ve never seen one but I’ve learned from a friend that they are a tradition. They sound like great fun. 🙂

    Wonderfully composed and finely vocalized, Keith.
