x Celestial Blue and Green of Grass

High over the white clean clouds
she serves hot coffee in the sky
Smiling pretty stewardess
with one green, one blue eye
(alluding to her dual life -
celestial blue and green of grass)
He saw her left side first,
an all embracing smile,
a green, then a blue eye...
Ah, secret charm of dual life!
Unearthly pleasure of the flight.
Not far away from Earth,
a casual face hints at the
closeness of an unknown space.

    Very beautiful poem, the title is gorgeous just on its own but the little story behind it is equally delightful. HG: -) xx (Report) Reply

    I knew such a woman once
    and thought her different coloured eyes
    although they came as a surprise
    had the power to hypnotise
    At least they fascinated me
    I was beguiled completely
    The lady had no time for me
    for she was married happily (Report) Reply

    Lovely, Onelia - as usual you take a sideways look at a situation and we are not sure whether the eroticism is in your poem or just in our (less innocent) minds! (Report) Reply

    I am so sorry... I am sitting here laughing and all I can think about was her Curriculum Vitae and her interview... aroha xxxx (Report) Reply

    The green of terra firma and the blue of the firmament - the duality of two separate lives is cleverly brought together in this closely observed write. Your keen eye and originality make this a memorable piece. (Report) Reply

    This fits neatly with lots of your poems, it seems to me - concerned with the duality of people, only being half 'here'. I like it very much.

    Ah this is so very lovely. First let me say that the title is wonderful. Secondly the story is so very clever. How she could look at him with different eyes. (I guess we could all do this huh?) Sometimes when I'm focusing on what makes me happy I think of a summer's blue sky whilst lazing on green grass. For me, this is what the title means. For you, the wonderful story within. How lovely Onelia. HG: -) xx (Report) Reply

    On mushrooms the earth is smothered in blue, it is a gentle hue where faries
    are made, and the green light is like mint to a raging throat. (Report) Reply

    The processes of identication are complexes and very long. The objects are dismantled and reassambled, dispersed and condensed. In this poem we've a couple as well as, with some differences, in my 'Ode to Pelé' Onelia commented about. In 'Celestial' the objects are divided, in 'Ode' reunited. In 'Ode' the champion symbolizes a piece of preserved paternal value. In 'Celestial' the feeling is more actual. (Report) Reply

    What a great doubletake and what you make of it...very intriguing and mysterious. Do different coloured eyes see the world in different they cry diffferent coloured tears.
    A poem to make you think and then think about what you think and how you think it. Now there's a thought!

    love Donall Donall (Report) Reply

by Ambrose Bierce

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,
