Only Olive Green Eyes...

Only Olive Green Eyes...

A Poem by An owl on the moon

A moment all my heart craves... Remix from the past...
































     Out my frosted window a red beam pierces the clouds as quilted, gray blankets cover the earth.  She is there, on the shore, her figure wrapped in the wisping gray.

     My window shrieks as it opens, and the sharpness of sea and salt fill my mind.  The circling birds swim the currents of air and cry to one another, as the whispering sea foam drapes the sandy shore.

     My heart ceases as she glances at me.  For a moment, I cease.

     The sand colored wood claws at my feet as I move toward the sea, and toward her piercing gaze.


This morning I breathe iced air,  

And wander toward the waves.

For a moment I live without care;

a moment all my heart craves.    


    The earth turns to reveal her lily face.  There is no longer ocean, only olive green eyes…

Wow, what magic! I love the sense of the universe dropping away in the face of the olive-eyed woman [literally!] I think this is something between a poem and a drabble/short story, and it has all the more richness n' strangeness for it. To me, it feels somehow more real than straight verse would.

The narrator's enthralled, so am I - well done! ^_^

2023 is here... May we make it so much more heaven than hell... Wishing all peace on earth... The night has a thousand eyes, And the day but one; Yet the light of the bright world dies Wi.. more..
