beautiful sky blue sky
stretched from one corner to another
a too-bright silver disc above me
but i don’t care.
I see the dark blue line
where the sky and the sea green sea
sit and chat
all day long
like they’re best friends.
as that silver ball of fire dips
disrupting the sea-sky time,
they are no longer friends.
they puch each other apart
fighting for the other, cooler, prettier
silver disc, the sky blue sky turning into the
perfect indigo, matching my soul
and sea green sea turning so dark
it looks like ink, but foamy.
as it reaches my feet, I wait for the
ball of fire to ascend
and the sky blue and sea green
to become friends
This was a prompt given to me by my bae Parvathi over at Queen Talks. She told me to write something with just one colour. It was obviously a challenge for me, seeing how much I love colour, but I really love this poem, even if the imagery is a bit cliched.
She and I have something exciting coming soon (we hope!) so look out for it!
