thin blue line

there’s a melancholy median
between the words her indigo toes
and the inky tracings of
blue-hued heart.
sapphire sea calls
desert drains,
this remains:
blue bleeds blue
until the Son shines through.

    You make me feel like all of it remains. Happy Summer Solstice! We are going to burn things tonight and watch them, orange and blue.

    Blue-hued heart, blue bleeds blue until the Son shies through sealed it for me. Love your poetic ability, so jealous right now.

    Every word was brilliant, and put together, stunning. Really loved this, Whimzy.

  9. Oh, De… “blue bleeds blue until the Son shines through.” You have a lovely, subtle, sort of non-threatening way of communicating your faith. Doesn’t hit people over the head, nor scare them off. You are a patient fisher of people, and this intimate look at a single mind and how it could be influenced for the better is a great example. Loved it! Peace and hugs to the family, Amy

  10. Lyrical, as always. I loved how you worked in so many variations of the word blue. Thanks for playing with us again. We hope to see you back tomorrow for the new challenge.

  11. Perfect!!! Love it, De!! Of course you know my heart loves that “sapphire sea,”

  12. Oh, as Hannah said, that `sapphire sea`

Use your words.
