Poem: Glazed Armor


image

Amazed I saw
Your green glazed armor
As you walked across enemy territory

Normally cloaked in lavish leaves
Waiting for unwitting prey
Who may wander or flit
Amidst the foolish colors
Only to be gone

We too stand naked
Bare of the camouflage we carry
Caught unaware
In alien landscapes

Our vibrant being
Shivering its name
For the lonely moment
It stands outlandishly alone

Then creeping back to the underbrush
We blend back and
Melt in to the millions

But we keep that shimmering second
The place where beauty broke
And feel the sweet singing difference
