|My deceased Tom would never wear his blue shirts. He had some in the closet, and I 'd ask him to wear them, well - he just ignored me. I finally got him to wear blue jeans after a struggle.|

|Love the intensity of this poem, Regis. For me, the message is much deeper towards the end, and that's where your words resonate with that sense of longing and/or sadness I often see in your work. Great writing. Love and hugs,

|Cher Regis,Je vois que vous aimez le bleu et peut etre les cheveux blonds. Anyway I like these:
Bittersweet and darkling blue
Like thoughts of you
That gradually fade to black
C'est un beau jeu de mots et de pensee

|There is a growing intensity in this poem. In a way, I agree with Lena's vision, but I also like it the way it is. My favorite part is when you move from a visual emotion ("barely blue but"...) to a completely emotional interpretation of the color ("like bruises of a sad and battered soul").

|blue has an intensity all its own especially when accompanied by black ...|
|Reviewed by Lena Kovadlo
|The poem is beautiful and emotionally moving. It flows like the gentle stream... I enjoyed it a great deal.
I would change only one thing in the poem... I would get rid of the first four lines of the poem. While those four lines are about the color blue they don't quite seem to fit with the poem and its flow. Getting rid of them makes the poem more affective, makes it stronger even. Try reading the poem with those first four lines and then try reading it without the first four lines and you will see the difference. Hope this helps.

Wonderful write. Blue is an odd color. It can make you happy, yet so sad. Peace and love.

|Isn't all too often the truth Reg? The few times I flew over the Rocky mountains I could see exactly where they got "for purple mountians majesty..." from. They are so pretty from 33,000 feet in the air. This is a very good poem with a realistic ending. Thank you for sharing Reg.
May the Lord Jesus bless you, and those whom you love, and be with you always, and at your side constantly. With much love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth, & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your little sister, Barbie.

|I hate being blue–so I sing the blues–it cheers me up. You have really covered blue beautifully with this monochromatic theme. It is interesting that beautiful blue water sky and somehow be turned into a melancholy feeling. But human emotion is so complex we end up using colors to describe it.

|You have vividly brought blue into my world...I prefer purple however!
Nicely done, Reg.

|Regis,looks like you have captured Blue in all its phases
important to you. Perhaps from now on, we should call you
Little Boy Blue or, alliteratively speaking, Big Boy Blue.
Great write. Me, I'm a Purple kind of guy. -gene.
