About the Poem

A symbolic look at the inner feeling of people using a contrast of hot decor and cool weather to explore feelings.

Palm Tree Perspective

Palm trees waving
in the early morning breeze.
Outlined by
a pearl grey sky.

Which is in contrast to
the Mediterranean decor,
that bespeaks bright blue skies and
hot sunshine.

Pink tile roofs,
- - bright orange, hot pink and
brick red flowers abound
in this Greco- Roman world.

However, the cool atmosphere
belies the torrid scenario.
Casting all things into murky shadows.
That begs the question: "Is it alive or a nightmare? "

Alive as in golden rays of
sunshine, casting
everything in an ephemeral glow
of utter bliss.

Or, dark murky shadows
in a surreal world.
Filled with unfulfilled dreams
and broken promises.

The answer to the question,
lies in the eyes of the beholder.
Because their perspective on life,
colors the solution.
