Micro Poetry ~~ The Day

Emerald Cave Morakot, Thailand
from Kerry's post, June 17, 2017

The Day When 

Her bones turn to dark emeralds
Hues of green, admirable sheen
Guarded she'll be, teeth of gems green
Brazen thieves their wares they pedaled 

Her blood will turn to fine Merlot 
Drink of queens none finer for them
Hair of shining gold, fine emblem 
Dreaded thieves their wares all aglow

Emeralds, gold, wine undid her 
Thieves.  She's sold to highest bidder

 - Kerry's words for us, "Today is the day we put the "mini' back into the Sunday Mini-Challenge, and return to the option of form poetry. The object of this challenge is to write a poem in no more than 10 lines (but you may write in fewer than 10 lines all the way down to a single American sentence). Choose your own form or write in free verse, if preferred... our frame of reference is "Dark Emeralds" - from the final line of this poem by James Wright" again at the Toads link above.
