Green and Blue .. by Karina Tynan for Poetry Day 2019


Green and Blue … 

…Are the colours of his bedroom

painted up

since he left 

for down under on the matching globe


and the day today:

a surreal three quarters blue light;

a backdrop for the hedge

taking it out of the ordinary


or the dream I had last night;

blue curtains pulled back 

on a field of fright,

greenish and the tar-macadamed

road was wending


and blue with life as I went down

it again and hearts strung the hedges

like lights lighting the way 

back to his room, green


and blue like the mountains,

the sea

and the distance

out over the waves.
