Blue Green Colors Flashing

You are a blue green goddess that
floats

You are the jagged, twisted face of
hope

You are hanging in the air, close to
God

could you touch him if you tried?
could you pray for me tonight?

whisper in the wind and make it all
alright

all right to be just who I am.
all right to not give up my sin.
all right to cry most every night.
all right to be too weak to fight.

You are the blue green, jagged twisted
beauty uplifted, far away yet home,

goddess that floats.


Note_ Title comes from a Stevie Nicks song.

Powerful imagery... Intrigues the reader and drives them to speculate about why the narrator cries nearly every night.

The need for it to be "all right to be too weak to fight" is a great line connecting with many readers (probably all who have felt the same way at some point).

the lines quoted from your poem are deeper than the blue green depth that becomes the glance around it....

I loved this one Sara, especially where it goes 'could you touch him if you tried?
could you pray for me tonight?

That touches a cord with me... good one.

Love it.

Hi. I like your blog. It seems to be quite interesting. I have found Bluegreen theme here. I learned about the company from this great site www.pissedconsumer.com. To say the truth I should not have gone there after the numerous negative customers’ feed backs about the company. However, I did the rocky mistake and I regret this greatly.
