The Hues of His Days   poem  
Creators: Deirdre / Wyld_Dandelyon (Writer)
Rijorl leaves his long-loved home in the Rainbow Rainforest, and sees the Empire with a new perspective.
Posted: 05/31/12      [No comments yet] ~ 100 words.
 

Deep blue skies, delicate green seedlings
Crops pushing upward through brown dirt
Tended by golden bees and orange butterflies

Rijorl remembers tendays rowing
Between endless grey skies and gray water
The intense dark of night was a relief
The silvery flash of a serpent-monster
Was more color than they prayed for then

The fields around him now
Offer a wealth of colors
Compared to the sea

Rijorl composes verse for the sky blue snakes
For squatty geese with their clash-colored feathers
Bold bright songbirds and dazzling lizards
He sings for the flowers that hid his scant hair
During the birds

Author's Notes

This poem was written during the April, 2012 Muse Fusion. Thank you, Elizabeth, for the prompt!
