Behind Blue-Green Eyes
The sapphire sky above me sparkles;
stars suspended like precious stones in a cave.
Shining down on a land of charcoal;
dirt that will one day be my grave.
Thoughts of death depress so many,
but downhearted about it is not for me.
For, of cares and worries there won’t be any,
as my cerulean soul sails the azure sea.
But for now I stand in the navy of night,
thoughts a whirl in my blue-grey brain.
In my aquamarine notebook, words I write,
creating a poem, linking words in a chain.
A teal necklace rests beneath my chin,
and I wonder who owned it before me.
I write such wonderings with an indigo pen:
does the  previous owner sail the cobalt sea?
In the morning the sky will be a powdery blue,
from turquoise sheets tomorrow I’ll rise.
What the meaning is, I haven’t a clue,
these are just thoughts behind blue-green eyes.

        Any time! I love blue too! Did I tell you that we have a grandson (just a year old) named “Judah Cerulean”? We call him “Judah Blue!”
