Day 27: NaPoWriMo 2013 – The Grass Is

English: The grass is greener. A bull in Londubh

The Grass Is

Blue.
Sugar Hill,
Dolly,
Silver Dagger, too.
The Grass is Blue.

Greener.
Grant, in a castle;
Oil tycoon,
Mitchum not leaner.
The Grass is Greener.

Singing.
Paperback novel,
South African sizzle,
Love affair, stinging.
The Grass is Singing

rainChallenge of the day: Think of a common proverb or phrase — something like “All that glitters is not gold,” or “If wishes were horses, beggars would ride.” Then plug the first three words of the phrase into a search engine. Skim through the first few pages of results, collecting (rather like a poetic magpie) words and phrases that interest you. Then use those words and phrases as the inspirations (and some of the source material) for a new poem.

Today, I chose the phrase, “The grass is always greener on the other side.” In the process, I found a bunch of stuff that starts with “The grass is”, so I wove some of them into a poem.
