Iran Uprising: Sea of Green, a Poem

27 June 2009 No Comment

Sea of Green by William Alliss.

A sea of green
a tidal wave
a shock of churning green
an ocean filled with green
they say
have said
it’s drawing
near

A great sea is coming
the colour of earthly life
the colour of Islam
of growth
mobility
untroubled belief
the colour of go
release
soon to become
perhaps
the colour of
grief

A sea of green is coming
a great sea of grief
they say
have said
a tidal sea of green is coming
soon to become
perhaps
an ocean of
red
