haiku 51

iced trees

the sparse green army

stands guarding the hill against

mighty blue forces

sometimes

little galaxies

fall from

the night sky

and swirl

to the ground

sometimes

powdered stardust

borne on

the cosmic wind

settles

on our world

sometimes

it’s a mass

invasion

of tiny aliens

hanging

from parachutes

sometimes

a blizzard of

asteroids

in your headlights

threatens

your spacecraft

sometimes

True Colors

blue rose

I know it is said

That roses are red

And violets are blue–

But neither is true.

 

The colors we see

Are only reflected;

Those that the flowers

So promptly rejected,

And those they absorb

Cannot be detected.

 

It is said, too, I know

That our true colors show

And people see through–

But neither is true.
