GREEN

When you see red
I see green
She’s in your head
when you see red.

She was your pearl, you said,
forever your queen.
When you see red
I see green.

Posted for 100 Days of Summer 2014 (Facebook Group): 4 ~ Green. Also shared at Poets United for their Midweek Motif: Light and Dark (not exactly in the same strain in which it was intended, I’m sure…but light/dark contrast nonetheless).

 

Author’s Note: 
This photograph was actually posted for a different day/theme, but I continued to return to it, being intrigued by the color, the feeling of looking in on others together, the reflections. Truly an interesting photo by fellow challenge contributor, Kaisa Vuorio.

Time Marches On

 
TIME MARCHES ON

It
was
a year
I’ll never
forget, becoming
a teenager was thee milestone
we had all been waiting for: turning thirteen years old.
The perspective of looking back
on that year makes me
wonder why
I rushed
time
by.

On this “Friday the 13th”, I’ve written this poem for Poets United Midweek Motif: Thirteen–to use thirteen lines to write a poem about thirteen. I used the Fibonacci form with a reverse Fibonacci, which by default also makes the middle line thirteen syllables long. 🙂
