One Night On Lover’s Lane

Written for: dVerse Poets Pub – Quadrille-9 (Grace)
Use green as a noun, adjective or verb in 44 word post, no more nor less.  The title is not included in the word count.   You make it light & funny or dark & chilling.   Make us green with envy or green with horror.    You can go the route of green environment by writing an eco-poetry or a sci-fi poem filled with green-faced creatures.  I see green in fresh salads as well as old food, and one time I saw a woman with green-dyed hair in the subway.

One Night On Lover’s Lane

Lover’s Lane desolate
on moonless night. Couple
cozies on green leather
seats. Music completes mood.
Gleam on windshield distracts.
Viscous violet fluid creeps
down windows. They scream,
clutch each other. Rising up
from slime, eel-like insects
of pea green color begin to screech.

We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are in the process of returning to New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.

  4. I think it might be worth the risk, otherwise the Lover’s Lane would be empty.

  8. The only thing we don’t get here is your music, but I was imagining
    something jazzy, like Miles Davis 🙂

    Yikes! The “vicious violet fluid” really changed the mood. Like your take on “green”.

  10. Imagine to be rudely disturbed by greenish crawlies when one is in the throes of sharing grand moments with a loved one. Chuckles, smilingly one sympathise with the change of mood imposed on them. Clever take Sara, good-humored, Ma’am!
