Those Eyes So Green

Poem inspired by this photograph (author unknown).

Short poem for the Pictonaut challenge of September 2014.


Oh, have you seen,

Those eyes so green,

Behind a veil of tangerine?


She’s foreign born,

Seeing new dawns,

While far behind the homeworld mourns,


A refugee,

Forced now to be,

Crossing across the galaxy.


Coming so far,

To where we are,

Abandoning a dying star.


So comes this queen,

With eyes so green,

Veiled ‘neath regal tangerine.
