Two-Tone Poem Sunglow Yellow; Navy Blue

I can be Sunglow Yellow, opposite the night, Liberal in the light, Never feeling low, Feeling at home, I am Sunglow Yellow.

I am Navy Blue on down day, Everything feels gray, Like I’m astray, Drowning in the sea

People in glass houses shouldn't throw stones, they always say Even in a wooden house I wouldn’t throw stones, but hey, Some of these things, I just can’t comprehend.

Never asking for something in return Jasper, kind at heart

For a fresh start

Free Verse Poem Almost like you’re descending to nothing, You begin to ponder, What’s over yonder? That’s when you realize, it’s the mountain that’s bluffing.

You’re not really falling, you’re flying, But, how are you flying, If your feet are on the ground? If only the mountain would stop lying.

As you begin to think again, the mountain flattens, And you realize you weren’t falling or flying, you were skiing.
