The Prussian Blue Kite

The Prussian Blue Kite ballad

Photo by Fimb

A perfect breeze and a crystal blue sky,
Speckled with colors of kites flying high.

A little beyond, the rainbow smears its color
On the Prussian Blue Kite that glides in valor.

The crowd beneath rejoice and cheer,
As his master tugs his tail and he soars up higher.

No time to waste, no moment to pause,
He’s got to prove his worth, he’s here for a cause.

A pair of pretty eyes watch through the crowd,
As his master brims in grandeur with each kite knocked out.

So the Prussian Blue Kite, loyal and brilliant,
Drifts with the wind, for his master so jubilant.

Oh darn! A monster awaits in the nescient Blue Kite
The vicious Red kite, dashed with all his might.

Moments of scuffle………..
And his string fell loose, though he gave a good fight,
The crowd roared again; this time for the Red Kite!

The wind betrayed and pushed him down
Soon he gasped – his master had lost the crown.

So he sailed with the wind, in shame and horror,
To find a new master – may be a Tree or a River.

Myth Of Ocean Blue Eyes

Whispered names falling simply off lips, Freckles that ripple on skin, Azure eyes that flooded dreams. Eyes may capsize stable thoughts, Blindly wade into unknown waters, Not knowing awaiting dangers. A siren’s melody put in a trance, A map to

Blue Whale

Blue Whale short poem

Meaninglessly traversing into the havoc of vanity With a fake logic justified, Leaving the players into the deathly chasm. A Blue bottle game denying the soul of life! Two and two they say ten, And it is their game playing
