Shades of Eyes

Written for:  dVerse Poets Pub - Eyeing The Quadrille #147
(posted by Bjorn)

"So today for you, you are to write a Quadrille, 44 words which have to include the word eye in the main body of the poem."

Four people in my family–
different color eyes.  My mom’s
were a sensuous shade
of clear green, like tropical
waters.  My dad’s eyes
twinkled brown, and my sister’s
are deep brown, chocolate, her
favorite flavor.  My eyes 
are blue like the ocean I love.

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.

  1. Lovely descriptions of eye colors.


  2. Is this true? Who has the blue eyes in your family? My daughter has greenish eyes. Those I have heard are the most rare.

    It does seem to defy what they teach us about inherited traits, doesn’t it? (K)
