Green

              Green

Green eyes beckon me
I run back in my valleys dream
The tank rolls onward
As the grass around me folds
Behold those eyes kiss goodbye

    wow, I found a more recent one that I somehow missed again. Richard, I was reading comments you got below here, and I honestly do not remember this one being in my contest!! Perhaps it was and then got eliminated for that second line having an extra syllable? But I just don't recall ever reading this before! It is a mysterious one. I am thinking as he died, he was remembering his love back home. Did I get ir right? It's lovely!

    You know what, as many times I counted that out, I missed that lol. No worries Petal, as far as contests are concerned, I don't take them that seriously, have read the blogs on them lol. Yes you're spot on.

    It's refreshing to read poems that aren't always straight forward. There was a great deal of green in every line, which I liked. It's hard to imagine what was in your head when you wrote this... but it's fun to piece it together. I picture a soldier running towards his lover, but then somehow drastically gets killed... and she's just left to watch it with no hope of stopping it. Each person will take it differently I imagine... my submission was the color orange - perhaps a bit unorthodox...

    Hi Tim, nothing is unorthodox in poetry, in many was that is what poetry is, the turning of words and meanins from the norm, not sure if I've looked at yours, I'll go look now, see if I can make head or tails of it lol

    Hello Richard, today was a long day. smothered by love, and family. (YIKES!) However I love the expensive gift. :-* about your poem: without planning, the conception and construction of a real poem. HUM!!! You did well if this is for the 5 minute poem contest. * Your dreams have diluted my imagery with a signal that sends a fair warning shot into a world of self inflicted war. Not the real thing. I' really don't feel sad emotions, just one big unclosed door. These eyes of jade seem to beckon towards a City of Unfinished business. ~ it's all relevant. Thank you for leaving my mind in a puzzled state. You know that one piece you can find.. LOL. I still enjoyed the verse. Mostly I like how I can build my own imagery, and kiss it all goodbye :-( xox~ LINDA

    l enjoyed reading this piece. The last line seems to mark something tragic-possibly someone breathing their last? Someone falling in combat?

    I think your showing your wicked side here my Sweet Dark Friend, and yes you did mention, several times in fact lol

    This is intriguing and imaginative. The images seem to tell of a soldier daydreaiming of his love while rolling through warfields in a tank. I think this is stunning, even if I am not correct.

    Hi Reb, I'm only doing this form this contest, is a sort of dare lol, it's my first effort and I'm sorta in the dark on these. I understand it's up to the reader to put there own interpretation on the write. Thank you the comment which has also given me food for thought.
