Poem - Blue


Jet plane screams above

Sky blue, clean of clouds


Fuzzy sweater, baby blue, knobby with lint

Pulled from the dryer, static sparks


Wisps of blue smoke, gas flame fired hot

Icy blue glaciers calving, chilly air


Blue jays swooping, burst of feathers

Iridescent blue plays on hummingbird’s throat, catches the sun


Blueberries picked fresh, still warm, explode on my tongue

Blackberry pie, flakey crust oozing sweet blue, tints vanilla ala mode


Midnight blue, silky, dotted with stars

Inky blue, stubborn, stains my fingers
