Vera Sidhwa Poems
Ah green, I love my green.
It's the traffic light's nicest scene.
Green is a traffic dream.
You can always keep driving, driving, driving.
And you can keep going in life, whatever you're doing,
Your favorite project, your favorite dream.
And orange traffic light,
In my life, I've had to a slow down when I was skiing,
A slow down of whatever I was doing.
And oh red light.
I had to stop being in so much strife.
I had to stop my bad habits.
Your Halo Far Away
Look how the breeze kisses the roses so gently,
And how the green glittering leaves sing in harmony.
See the constellations stand still, for that is their fate,
Yet people look at each other with hate.
Please, aren't you coming today? Oh, I see your halo far away.
Won't you save our day, we beg you to come today.
There seems to be a tune in the air, and the birds sing as if they have no care.
