Bunny Blue




blue bunny blue
in the blue grass
with your little blue soul
with your wonders, your shivers
what hides in the thick
in the thick blue thicket
what crackles, what breaks
is it the moon
the cold blue moon
reaching for you
with fingers of twigs
with whispers of leaves
is it the fox, the swift red fox
the fiery fox
or a big blue owl with eyes of moon
blue eyes of moon
what is after you
blue bunny blue

only a shadow blue
this time only the moon
blue bunny blue

Vesper, I would absolutely love to see this poem as a children's book. With the repetition and echoes, and that delightful sense of building, I think it'd be perfectly suited.

This was pure pleasure to read. Thank you for sharing it with us.

Beautiful post. Sarah is right, it needs to be in a book.

You know I don't say this often--but what a lovely poem--I can see it metaphorically but I am choosing not to. Mind if I snag this for my kindergarten and first graders to work on their reading?

Sarah, how can I say how happy your praise makes me? I'm beaming! Thank you for having such nice thoughts on my little poem.

Teri, thank you so much, and thank you for visiting. I know that "blue" was your idea - excellent!

Mark, is that you? Is that really you? :-D
Thank you, my friend. Of course, you can read it with the children, I would be honored.

Optimistic Existentialist, thank you so much! Much appreciated! :-)

Thank you Vesper for reading and following my story, When Dark Closes In, and for the comments. I'm working on the editing for the next chapter, and installment. I like your poems, Bunny Blue and Dance of Love. Very nice.
