Green Eyes

Green Eyes

A Poem by Inner Rain

Free Verse Poem


His eyes are green in the sun,

    A deep green that looks brown in the shadows.

Like the colour of the leaves,

    During the last days of autumn and the first days of spring.

Escaping the winter chill,

    Melting the shimmering ice.

They are beautiful, far more beautiful than I.

    For his eyes glisten in the sunlight, and all mine can do is hide.

We often see the beauty in others that we don't see in ourselves. I suspect he has the same thoughts when he looks into your eyes.

I liked how it was so real.
One thing that appeals to me in a poem is its authenticity...whether the feelings they convey come from a real source...if a poem manages to do that, it turns beautiful.
This one is beautiful. :-)
