Blue

BLUE

Looking down

I saw looking up

the sky so brilliant

in the five petals

of the forget-me-not,

centered inside with

a puff of cloud white,

a flurry of blue

above spring green.

 

Looking up

I saw looking down

the breath of life

in the sky so blue;

the wet of rain

in the cloud of dew;

a promise remembered

of the earth renewed.

    • Yes– I just read your “blue” vacation! A wonderful experience that brought back my own memories which I wrote as a comment:

      “splashing up waves
      of frothy salty foam, intricate as lace.
      Our eyes follow the lacy white
      into a spectrum of blues” —
      that frisk and flow
      between my toes,
      tickling a memory
      of long ago
      giggles
      while racing,
      stamping
      each
      flow.
