Love warms me as I stare
at a cloudless, blue sky.
Standing at the edge
of a deep blue ocean,
I feel an amazing sense of
hope and second chances.
Blue describes my grandfather's
eyes, sparkling with laughter.
A bouquet of blue balloons,
for the new bouncing baby boy.
The cast of The Great Smoky Mountains
glows with a blue promise of freedom.
Red, White, and Blue fly above
the post office, proudly announcing
Could the blues be sang so meaningful,
had Muddy Waters not felt blue?
Mixed with the right shade of red,
blue produces my favorite hue of purple.
Just a few thoughts that float through
my mind when I hear the word 'blue'.
