Poem a Day-April 16

April 16
Green

I painted every
Wall green
Yes green
Not all the same shade
Of course
But green
I like green
I’m Finnish
Well my grandfather
Was
So I can be
When I want to
Finns like
Green
So I’m Told
Not gold
Green
I painted
The outside green
Too
Polish green
They said
Looks terrible
They said
But it was
Green.
My house.
My green.
I like
Green
When I left
They
Painted it brown
Yuck

Green (also my fave) is way better than yucky squishy brown. I love the stream-of-conscientious feel to your poem.

Nuttin' wrong with green... I'm still choosing a color! I will never be QUICK with my poems because every day involves making a decision!

I don't mind green but I wouldn't want EVERYTHING painted green! (wink)

I've enjoyed your poems Dr. John :)

I love this poem and the way you have laid it out is equally delightful.

At twilight last night, toward the end of 2 days' worth of rain, the green outside of my window was so beautiful it almost hurt my eyes.
