“cool blue”

Written for:  The Twiglets #259 - cool blue

sea scent candle burns
a cool blue, carries
ocean to my senses

Novelty of Blue Man Group
was cool
for a time.

she blues the river
mirroring weeping willow
with trickling tears

               Creature came from out of the blue
               ocean, brine and seaweed his tattoo.
                  He had five legs and arms
                    was lacking in charm
             In truth, he was part of a Disney crew.

    I wonder how many remember the Blue Man Group. I don’t know if I could be ‘Painted’ in that way.
    Fun Limerick too. I can see some Disney creation just as you describe!

    First leg of our journey almost complete. Tomorrow we ‘set sail’.
