I write what I feel…

What if…


Sidey’s Weekend Theme, 22.07.2011: What if?

What if…

What if the sky was green
And the grass was blue
What if you loved me
And I loved you

What if the clouds were brown
And the sea was pink
What if I would own
Just what I think

What if I could see
What if you could tell
Is it Fate putting us
Through this earthly hell

What if we went back
To where we were
What if we never met
And we were pure

We can’t blame Fate
For our dilemma
The choice was ours
To live with forever

Nothing’s too hard
For Him to forgive
It’s for us to decide
How we want to live

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people! I am back after a break. Thanks for still being here, if you are! Missed you! xxx

  1. Profound, adee.


  2. What if..small words..gigantic meaning.
    Very good poetry, well done


  3. Lovely rhythms in this poem


  4. What a wonderfully human poem, Denise. I loved it.
    I think there is one of my poems which will complement it, called “Kyrie Eleison”
    (Lord have mercy)

    Watch my space



  5. What if the sky was green
    And the grass was blue…

    is a beautiful dilemma, and perhaps would end up in a Shakespearean answer that— call by any name, a rose smells as sweet.

    I wish you had continued such pairs before the message came through.
    Good poem Denise.


    • Thanks, Sunamu. I often wonder if we do, in fact, see the same colours as each other. I may see what you call red and I call it blue and vice versa. Too complicated to explain clearly…, but very interesting nonetheless.


  6. love the playful seriousness…making us smile and think all at once….


  7. great what if’s in this one adee


  8. Wonderful “what ifs” Denise!

    FYI ~ “Artists can color the sky red because they know it’s blue. Those of us who aren’t artists must color things the way they really are or people might think we’re stupid.” ~ Jules Feiffer


  9. Beautiful work, I love the simplistic, yet in-depth nature of this


  10. Wow! I loved it, well done


  11. This is a terrific poem, I loved it.


  12. I hope that if the sea is pink it is going to smell and taste like strawberry milkshake. 🙂


  13. ‘What if we went back to where we were…’ that is something I think of occasionally during my down moments. This is a very poignant poem. I like it a lot!
