Neville

Perfectly Hued

Perfectly Hued

 

If all we could see was

perfectly hued ..

Shaded in silver

shadowed and blued

As comfortably snug

as your old

quilted jacket

and well-worn pair

of handmade brogues ..

With all to be gained

and nothing to lose

We would surely

never again dream of

closing our eyes to the world ..

          An appealing thought rtdes upon your words this fine wednesday but..... would I trade my dreams for the world to be so, shaped?
          Nay sir, open eyed and i say nay sir. My dreams are a wonder for my inner eye only and mine alone. They are the wit of my poetry and i shall take them with me to journeys end.

          Thank you neville for lighting a fire with your words today to exercise my thoughts along a track they had not seen.

            "Perfectly hued," is of itself a dream. Even a world without people, still must contend with the nastiness of Nature. A day might be so hued during the daylight hours, but then there is the darkness, and the world is full of predators and prey, storms and disasters, angry seas, unbearable temperatures, etc.
            "If" begins your poem and it is a mighty big word, but accepting the impossible as possible, it would be a beautiful dream come true, such that we could surely never close our eyes again.
            Your poem presents a view to the world and to the nature of man that we all wish to be true. It is food for thought served on fine china. It is appetizing to the palate and honey to the taste. Loved it! - Phil A.

                      "We would surely
                      never again dream of
                      closing our eyes to the world .."
