2015 Day 2 – It was not…

It was not
Red with the blood of innocents –
There were no innocents.

It was not
A pure blue note against a white sky
Or vice versa.

It was not exactly singing
Or silence.

It was not
Waves breaking on a rocky shore
Though I’m not denying
There may have been a hint
Of salty wetness.

It was not,
Emphatically,
A whispered promise.

It was not you.
It was not me.

It was not what we expected,
Not at all.

Notes: The prompt for today was to write a poem describing something in terms of what it is/was not.
