Oil On Canvas short poem

Photo by lisamurray

Hung from the prussian blue sky,
Staring downwards into the

The pond with green waters
And a cemented bank,
Where local kids wash their feet
After a football match,
Has fallen silent at this hour
Flaunting unabashedly a cheap replica –
Of the dead moon’s yellowing portrait.
