Green and yellow windows

Green and yellow windows

Beckon mysteriously –

Calling me out of the rosy life I used to lead.

I wave goodbye as the petals fade,

The flowers I can’t pick up again;

But up ahead there’s a paper house –

Fragile walls and transparent doors,

Ready to crumple, yet razor sharp

And all around are new words,

Waiting to be written.

      Thank you so much! My favourite thing about writing surreal poetry is that it can be about anything, and can be interpreted as anything. Thanks for taking the time to read my blog! :)
