“steel sky”

Written for:  The Twiglets #283 - steel sky

standing under
a steel sky
if night will fall

The sky purpled
into twilight.
I steeled myself.
Would he show up?

plump raindrops fall
pinging pond of fish and frogs
ominous sky of steel

             An alien fell to earth from the sky.
              He was puzzled, and wondered why.
                 This was not his planet,
                    no one wore granite.
    Strange speech, crazed hair, and screaming at his one huge eye.

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.

    The first three very relatable – and the Limerick – reminded me of some of Dru’s one eye’d minions. 😀 I also just remembered a Twilight Zone or Outer Limits (black and white) episode with a ‘waiter’ who had his true one eye under his cap!
