Emerald Sunshine

By: James Revels III

I’m holding golden moments recalled with silver tongues,

Harder than a diamond to forget how fun it was,

To play under the Verde rays of each passing day,

More precious than time or an emerald sunshine.

Born under the month of ruby, day number thirty,

A diamond in the rough, my exterior dirty,

But self-cleaning like citrine.

I reflect jaded sunshine beams in infinite shades of green.

From the Earth I came, To the Earth I shall return,

As a broken carbon atom used to fertilize ferns,

And sapphire tears will fall on my crematory fire,

Although, a smile of quartz teeth is all I require.

So, hold golden moment and recall them with silver tongues,

Because it’s harder than a diamond to forget how fun it was,

To play under the Verde rays of each passing day,

Which are more precious than time or an emerald sunshine.

    1. I only did that because several people I showed it to before posting it didn’t understand it :/ i dislike explaining my work myself but I dislike confusing people more

  1. Brilliant! There are so many different elements to this poem!; the elemental, the real, the profound. Wonderful metaphor and imagery and the hook is really nice. Very well done!

  2. Poets don’t get rich. But they surely know how to make imagery memorable. Nicely done. Also, thank you for visiting my blog and liking my children’s poem.

  3. I like that you make music to go with your poems… i’d like to hear you reciting the poem though as I think it would sound better you saying the words to the music if you catch my drift!

    1. lol I might do it because I do have recording equipment to do so…but I’m low key a little scared of accidentally defiling my music with words lol

      1. I know what you mean.. but the poem is for the music so go for it… maybe do a few practice runs first… don’t forget you can always delete it if you don’t like it! :)

    1. Thanks glad you enjoyed it. No problem about not getting to the music. There’s plenty of it over on my other blog because 2 years ago I moved to my new blog audiosexxx.com and after publishing a book of poems I decided over the next month I’m going to reboot The Evolution of Eloquence and curate both blogs. I hope to see you around!
