There was blue –
like the midnight sky as it draped
beneath the full moon,
deep sapphire, nearly violet,
darkening to black as
it fell to earth.

There was blue –
like the sun kissed waves as they caressed
silken, bleached sands,
cerulean waters, sparkling
in their sensual dance
to Helios above.

There was blue –
like the early summer blooms
of delicate forget-me-nots,
azure blossoms sprinkled
among the sweet flowers
of a verdant garden.

There was blue –
like the slate flecks found
among the golds in your eyes,
where I discovered succor
from the world’s battles and
a homecoming for my soul.

There was blue –
the color of stability and calm;
it washed over us,
took us within its cooling folds,
lifted us to new perspectives,
beyond the horizon.

There was always blue –
yet you opened me to worlds
of cobalt, royal, beryl, and cyan,
transforming blue and me
from sad shades and hues
to the lapis lazuli of heaven.

So very calming and this wonderful writing would cure anyone of the "Blues"
Many never see the other colors from the fear of new journeys. Loved your writing!

The colors of heaven must be wonderful I know my Tom is experienceing them now. Colors meant a lot to him. Most men like blue, mine is yellow, but I like this message, the sea is blue, and the many flowers of blue are treasures to be adopted for us too. Your descriptive write about the many things on earth here are indescribably delicious to read and ponder over.
