Five Poems by Patricia Furstenberg

White on Blue


To the white sky with blue clouds

and the white sea on blue waves

I shut my white eyes

and scream inwards.



Sapphire Planet


On the sapphire planet embraced by a cerulean sky,

where azure rivers dissolve among hills dipped in ultramarine die,

blue is the language to settle, immerse, expand, and verse,

one with the universal memory, by and by.



Light, Evanescent


Light, evanescent, spontaneous and alive

a shard of glass, a wink of sunlight, a breath of life

the height of summer, the yearn to fight

for open eyes through life’s each strife.



Blue Flower


A leaf lost not down the dazzling stream

such crumbled life that paused by the silken grass green

where a tall, blue flower with glossy, wide leaves

touches the water with its purplish shade, the queen.



If They Call You White Rose


Fear not if they call you the white of the rose

for a rose with sweet fragrance has thorns that show

and roots hidden deep in the earth underfoot

for strength, as it smiles to her only one sun.
