- - - - In Awe Of Blue
Poem By Ben Gieske
This morning the sun spattered the world with blue
Skies and from their resting places the winds blew
In reply. Now around us we see blue jays,
Blue grass, blue bells, blue ribbons, all sea blue.
The birds scatter from here and everywhere
And we’re in awe of what comes out of the blue.
What do we detect above the mountain tops?
Could there be aliens beyond outer blue?
Happy those who tan themselves on sea shore sand
Having salt-water waves washing them with blue.
Sometimes I wonder about this color too.
How can some ever be saying “I feel blue.”?
I want to take the sky, wrap it around you
and me. We could be enrobed in peaceful blue.
