Final Door

Brown house Grey smiles Green green grass Black shoes Crystal tears with heart felt whispers Hugs Blue sky with cream teeth Green green grass (hold that thought) Glassed water grasped Taut innards Flowers brought White horses Braided manes White lilies Window pane White carriage To carry forth Green green grass Hold that thought Passing traffic Collars grasped Blurry images Tend then pass Crystal tears Smart black tie Shake and smile Avoid the eye Deep breath enter in Listen watch Let them begin Then stare at the floor 'Bye bye darling' Open door (using colours and images as a distraction to absolutely the worst day of my life)

Wow Karen. This is stunning in that it brings me so clearly to that same day you know. It plunges into my bones. I remember the grass looked so strangely fake to me. love, Kathy
