Flash Poem # 8 ” The Wait “

” A Pale Green Mermaid Blog “

 

THE WAIT

 

Alright I’ll wait

but don’t try to slow down my gait

If you come through

We’ll dance until we turn blue

there is a piece of me that will never say die

never tell a lie

about this thing

this feeling

this rose-colored dream

so I accept the fear

I’ll just have another beer

and wait…

Flash Poem # 7 ” Give Me A Clue “

” A Pale Green Mermaid Blog “

 

GIVE ME A CLUE

 

I feel your aura breeze over me

mine, ebbs between your toes, up your back

please don’t give me any flack

are the cards stacked?

 

The dice loaded?

 

Will you be true?

I haven’t a clue.

Flash Poem # 6 ” Cardboard Relic “

” A Pale Green Mermaid Blog “

 

CARDBOARD RELIC

They, want you to remain

the same

the crowds the hoards

but they don’t know you were never a cardboard relic

for them to have and hold in collections galore –

something is still in store,

you are flesh and blood

if I might say, quite a stud…

so break out, break free —

I watch with glee!

Flash Poem # 5 ” To Eschew “

” A Pale Green Mermaid Blog “

 

TO  ESCHEW ?
I know who I love

but he doesn’t quite…-… love me

what’s a girl to do?

eschew

love in toto?

What is the purpose of love?

the point of love

the heart of love

to open to explore, to knock on that door.

a window passes and all that drips from the sky,

are questions that slowly twist into sunsets.

Flash Poem #4 ” A Cup Of Tea “

” A Pale Green Mermaid Blog “

 

A CUP OF TEA?

Dreams,

with bloated seams

gleam under

the weight of a golden team –

left to steam…and steam, and rise above my tea cup.

A CUP OF TEA.

Dreams –

Flash Poem # 3 ” A Grand Old Heart “

” A Pale Green Mermaid Blog “

 

A GRAND OLD HEART

 

It was a grand old heart

It lasted through several yellow moons

It was a grand old heart

it played many tunes

it was a grand old heart –

Now it lies silent, veins and metal bolts strewn,

 

It was a grand old heart, from the start

… … … never unfurled.

 

 

 

With thanks to,

You’re a Grand Old Flag

 

by George M. Cohan
 

You’re a grand old flag,
You’re a high flying flag
And forever in peace may you wave.
You’re the emblem of
The land I love.
The home of the free and the brave.
Ev’ry heart beats true
‘neath the Red, White and Blue,
Where there’s never a boast or brag.
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
Keep your eye on the grand old flag.

You’re a grand old flag,
You’re a high flying flag
And forever in peace may you wave.
You’re the emblem of
The land I love.
The home of the free and the brave.
Ev’ry heart beats true
‘neath the Red, White and Blue,
Where there’s never a boast or brag.
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
Keep your eye on the grand old flag.
