The Invasion

The Invasion

A Poem by kdpgrahi

Spring winked a vitreous optic , 

and deflected me from my course. 

when my feet became entangled 

in the lure of the vernal coquette. 

safely forded the spring freshet of colours

The lenient air and the settings 

almost formed a pastoral; 

the presiding shade at the creation 

of man and vegetation.

The callow grass between the walks 

was the color of verdigris, a poisonous green, 

reminiscent of the horde of derelict humans 

that had breathed upon the soil during the summer . 

The bursting tree buds looked strangely familiar 

to those who had botanized among the garnishing 

of the fish course of a forty-cent dinner. 

The sky above was of that pale aquamarine tint 

that ballroom poets rhyme with "true" and "Sue" " 

The one natural and frank color visible 

was the ostensible green of the newly painted benches  

a shade between the color of a pickled cucumber 

and that of a last year's fast-black cavernous  raincoat. 

But, to the city-bred eye of passengers, 

the landscape appeared a masterpiece.

     

And now, whether you are of those who rush in, 

or of the gentle concourse that fears to tread, 

you must follow in a brief invasion of your benign mind.

Within your words undeniably abides great intellect and a palpable poet. The negligence of humans reflected within the ever distorted gift of nature and authentic beauty- our society and world written in a mere sentence. Your poem is the first I've entirely enjoyed in a while. Lovely write.

Strong words can teach and show the world a better place. Your poetry tells of many things right and wrong. Nature pay the price for man's greed.
