Written for:  dVerse Poets Pub:  Breathing In Blue (posted by De)
For this week’s Poetics, I want you to do just that: look up, breathe in some blue, and breathe out a poem. Ponder the hue itself (indigo, turquoise, cerulean, cobalt, aquamarine, sapphire, azure, slate) for a bit, then write. Or listen to some blues, and write us some sadness. Or if you’ve got those late-summertime-can’t-seem-to-write blues, tell us about it – in poem form.

Aquamarine stones
of March-mad Aries
wink in sunshine.

Facets fold flat
to one-dimensional rock
when indigo mood spills
ink, blots out light.

Baby has the blues,
no blue-suede shoes,
no Broadway tunes, merely
a steely blue rendezvous.

  1. That’s my son, March-mad, an aquamarine baby. I like this, though it’s melancholy and he is not. 😀
