Dreaming Through November ~ Two Shades of Green

Two Shades of Green

Sea green!!
I have it,
His eyes are sea green.
It has taken me two weeks
To find their color,
I never look into them
For more than a second,
Everyone knows
Eyes are the window
To the soul,
And his eyes,
Perceive much too much
So I keep my emerald eyes
Hidden behind sunglasses
And let him analyze
My blush.

B.J.H. November 2013

Green Upon Green

Green upon green
Water drenched trees
Under a canopy I write
Comforted by the sounds of twilight

Green turns to gray
As the day starts to fade
The colors go home
When the Moon takes the throne

Still I sit here and write
A poets delight
Under a canopy of trees
Touched by a gentle spring breeze

Gray turns to blue
As the stars come in view
I must go back home
To my fortress of stone

Green upon green
My eyes you have seen
My voice you have heard
My words you now read

Sometimes these things happen

::Green Glass::

It was an accident

You broke your green glass

Anger and yelling at the air

Hit the closet door

I roll my eyes

You say you want to slit your throat

So dramatic my love

I roll my eyes again

I clean up the dirty water

You pace the kitchen

Green glass in black plastic

I am irked

So I sit on the deck and smoke a cigarette


We laugh at your silliness

over broken green glass.

~For my Clyde ( sometimes a fool) …  to paraphrase a song by Staind ” You are the mess I chose, the closet I cannot close”

Love you my darling dear. LOL


This poem is brought to you by the letter “B” Dr. Seuss, Shel Silverstien and a Fool

::Broken Green Pen::

I am looking at a brown baseball cap
It has a big red B on it.
B for Boston Red Sox
As the guy wearing the hat hails from Boston
He is wearing it backwards
I look at that big red “B” it has other meanings for me
Other then Target… that starts with T anyway
B is for Bop
B is for Bang
B is for Bash
B is for Bat as in baseball bat
Basically i want to use one of these ” B words”
To inflict something uncomfortable
Cause something unfavorable
To happen to the guy across the room
Who is wearing the brown baseball cap with the Big Red B
I like the Red Sox so that is not the reason
for me wanting to brain this ball cap wearing dude
In fact I love the boy across the room
wearing the brown Boston baseball cap bearing the big letter B
My issue with him is that he gave me this damn green pen to write with
And it keeps running out of ink
B is for Bonnie beaming a broken pen at
A guy wearing a brown baseball cap

Acknowledgments (part of the damn poem or more the creative flow??? Who Knows so don’t stop reading!!)

I would like to thank Dr. Seuss for helping me learn to rhyme words and start all sentences or words of sentences with the same letter and for The Foot Book because it is true “everywhere you go there are feet, feet, feet, oh how many feet you meet”

I would like to thank Shel Silverstein for writing “Where The Sidewalk Ends” It was my intro to poetry and the only poet I would read until many years later when i discovered the joy of Edgar Alan Poe…. both men disturbed… but full of imagination.

And of course the Fool with the baseball cap who pushes me to write more and not rhyme so much… Dr. Seuss knows where you sleep dude and the three above mentioned great crazy writers of our time wrote in Rhyme too HA!
