The blue prints – TB

12 Jan

The blue prints
On white
Were
Handed over
At night.

The decline
Of one
Gave
Rise to
The other.

The red n white
Of England
Was
Splashed with
Blue.

Dear sirs, 
These lands
Were
Our lands.
Were. 

Dear sirs,
These lands
Are 
Your lands.
Are.

The Middle East
And South East Asia
India and Australia. 
The Atlantic, 
The Pacific. 
It’s all in the blue prints.

    That blue that came, a Caledonia blue or? from all the empire? Lot of thoughts here.

    Blue must be transnational, the color of Us, the lingua franca of the global realm.

    It reads like a flag… with a lot of heart… and full of symbolism.

    It does read like the American flag, but those colors mean more than just a claim of independence. They stand for the blood, determination, and peace that everyone fights for when tyranny tries to claim a seat at the throne. This world was made for you and me, not just one person, not just one ideal, not just one religion, but for everything in harmony. Great poem! 🙂

    Yes, it reads as a flag. and rich in symbolism. Such an important, timely piece.

    The decline of one does indeed give rise to another. Only a matter of time. Well written.
