Wet, Blue Days (Terza Rima form)

(A Terza Rima form
is a three-line stanza using chain rhyme in the pattern
A-B-A, B-C-B, C-D-C, D-E-D. Anther possible ending is
d-e-d, e or d-e-d, e-e.)

Gazing, I am mesmerised by topaz sky.
I fear maddening envy is all in vain
As I wipe away tears from each covetous eye.

The tears that dance then merge with the rain,
Fall upon me, ill fitting and incomplete.
Misted hazes halt many reasons to explain.

The old park bench’s damp but dusted seat
Takes the weight of thought and old ideas,
While the sun’s fresh rake runs a rainbow’s treat.

Fresh paint washes over contemplative fears
Hidden well behind walls and their quizzical whys.
I tilt my head to meet the sun’s canvassed sears.

Feeling whole, replenished and for once warm and dry,
Gazing, I am mesmerised by a topaz sky.

I write poetry/prose/stories/short stories/verses for children/sketch/and have 6 chapters of a novel sitting there like that half eaten trifle in the fridge or bottle of Jack Daniels because something makes you afraid to eat it or drink... right now.. I am a proud Geordie from England's northern hemisphere and the beautiful city of Newcastle upon Tyne. I live with my lovely husband who came all the way from sunny California just for me, and my favourite animal, Bobble, our dog. I am a member of Greenpeace and Friends of the Earth and wish we could all do more, especially today, when such a lot is wrong.
