Through your eyes

Through your eyes Is the sky blue and the grass green? It has to be because I’ve seen. But your green might be my blue, I’m sorry that just wouldn’t do. If the sky you see is my red, I think I’d lie down in my bed. What if your grass is my pink? I’d have to say that would stink! Pink grass and red sky, Dear oh dear, I’d surely die! I’m glad my blue is my blue, As far as I’m concerned that will do. And I like my grass the green I see, For how else could it ever be? Don’t want to see through your eyes, Just might scare me with surprise!

Maybe we should take more time to enjoy color in all flavors. Wonderful write. I totally enjoyed it. Ann

I agree Ann that we should indeed enjoy colour in all flavours (by the way I apologise for the fact that in the UK we have slightly different spellings for certain words). Thank you so much for your kind comment. Much appreciated. RT

Ronald, welcome to Poetry Soup. Since this rhymed, and well, I might have labelled it as RHYME but you can label it whatever you want. It is a nice concept, wondering what would happen if you could see things through another's eyes. Nice.

I agree it probably should be labelled a RHYME. Appreciate your comment Caren. Only just joined Poetry Soup and was a little apprehensive so your comment has helped immensely.
