Free Verse

 

Blues

 

The colour of his eyes
Ocean endless to infinite sky
Forget-me-nots and sapphires
The saddest music in the world

Bruises on her upper arm

Regret for all the words
said and unsaid.

 

 

Fumbling

 

you drop your keys
into silence

someone else holds hands
with your dream

your head whirls with words
your lips hold silent

screams.

 

 

Desolation

 

The island mined
by greed
to bleak desert.

Penguins build nests
from ancestral
bones.
