From zilch to zing: A-Z verses from vintage visages




From zilch to zing
Rhyming views on returning hues

The stairway from boring to bright
Brings frustrated frowns back to light.
From grainy and chipped
To zany and zipped,
We zoom to the zest and ignite.

As zombies, kept captive beneath,
No image of worth to bequeath,
We huddled and shook
As long as it took.
Till false proved the evil one’s teeth.

Our colors now glow without lamp.
Our spirits are no longer damp,
As boldly we stride,
No joys still denied.
For we from the gloom did break camp.

  2. I love this line most:
    Our colors now glow without lamp.
    Our spirits are no longer damp,

    So glad to have found you through the A to Z Challenge.
