Wonder in Indigo & Ebony

 

There’s a black smudge in a skeletal tree telling me secrets, in song. There’s a busy leaf, capturing breeze. The sky is that particular shade of blue that just makes my heart happy for no other reason than blue itself. My own breath is slow, a hum and rhythm in my chest – a bird let out of cage, and holding out for heavens. My feet know this path, their own crunch-shuffle, and the day is poured out long in front of me, still. Unhurried. Unworried, like that little crow. All this blue, and no particular place to go.

rustled leaves whisper
dark bark songs on quiet limbs,
stretch before flying.

    This is my favorite part: “The sky is that particular shade of blue that just makes my heart happy for no other reason than blue itself.”

    Really nice. I am stopped in my tracks by “All this blue, and no particular place to go.”. Oh, how I want a few of those days.

    “for no other reason than blue itself.” might be one of your best lines ever.
