A Slice of Blue

(carry the one, bury the pi)


There’s a 3.14 (infinite, ad infinitum)
chance that we are permanently
by all this sacred Blue. Do you
want a sliver? A shiver of wave,
a turquoise indigo pool to save
your aching soul? Do you know
how to scoop this aquamarine
mirror into your smile?

Stay awhile, and be
-gin to carry your own heart.
The clouds are waiting to top
off all this delicious spill
with a fluffy cream filling
pause, a clause
of the most sand
calming kind.


prompted by poetic asides, and the prettiest place on the planet, Lake Tahoe.

    I adore the alliteration at the end! And yes, I do “know how to scoop this aquamarine
    mirror into [my] smile?” Especially if you’re referring to the mermaid movie called Aquamarine, which my kids are addicted to at the moment. 🙂
