Shades of Blue

I always had a weakness for blue eyes
Gorgeous orbs far more precious than sapphires
This royal color exists everywhere in nature
It quickly became my favorite color.
 
Halcyon days soon blessed my soul
As I found my soul-mate to accompany me  
Through storms and gentle winds, he is a constant presence
Looking up at the sky and I admire those shades of blue.
 
His golden hair that outshines the sun, and his gentle smile that warms my heart
Yet everything melts away once I stare in his azure eyes.
 
Just when life couldn’t get better, my soul came to life once more
As a Phoenix emerged from the flames before me
His stunning fiery hair illuminated the night
One look into his cyan eyes had me under a spell.
 
This crimson angel is proud and majestic
And swirling in his bright eyes are gorgeous shades of blue.
 
Walking along the beach, I met the last piece in my heart’s puzzle
A being as rare and precious as a Pearl
He had a rose in his hands, and a delicious smirk on his face
Yet all I saw were shades of blue.

Ocean Waves

When I am closing my eyes, all of the memories come rushing
Back like the turquoise ocean waves that are hitting or crashing
Against the rocky shoreline. We are running through them like

We are schoolchildren again with laughter that keeps gushing
Out like lava from a volcano, but it is that smile you are flashing
Me that I love. You came in strong like the ocean tide and strike

Of lightning. I want to capture it so it would not be gone forever
Among the sapphire and midnight blue sky. I want to tell you
That I am not afraid of the darkness and that I love the way your

Eyes reflect like the ice-capped mountains in winter I have never
Seen before. Can there be 50 shades of grey and 50 shades of blue?
Because I have seen the rainbow of colors, but blue is only pure.

Blue

My words burn like ice,
They emanate from a place so cold,
Engulfed by heated emotions of the worst kind,
They cut through fire ,freezing the burn of the hottest flame whose color is blue,
My favourite color in the spectrum of my being is blue,
Like the ocean,
On the surface I look peaceful,
Reflecting the beauty I wish was mine
But deep inside is a conflicted field filled with demons I keep concealed
So they don't see the light of day or let alone feel the surface breeze.
I am the fire in the ice,
I burn, i freeze
I'm blue

The blues Hiaku 5-7-5

Blue bird circles high
the clear skies paint your mood today
and keep the blues away

star shine

 
my sadness in blue  

shades of you wrap around me  
melancholy vines  
entering the sacred soul of my silence  
  
in mute trust  
we come in to one another  
coalescing in the scripture of each other  
it is written we would be  
  
in my cold darkness you appeared  
I was neither shaken or in need  
you saw me and wondered at the vision  
a woman alone in the vastness  
  
you came into me
I awaited you in hope  
but you only knocked and fled  
  
now shy and vulnerable  
blooming slowly  
each petal unfurling at my speed  
  
we are one upon the backs of eons  
evolving into each other  
we collide  
  
our love, lust story  
witnessed by the stars  
recorded and part of history is this shift  
  
as I realize I need you

blue

inside the sadness I wept
I named it blue
it came across the ocean
becoming one within my soul

it's shaded with grief
it undulates and shifts
growing more poignant
and deeply colored

it kisses my pain
he is willing
that we should heal as one

great tears roll down his face
silently he whispers
I will show you
your own reflection

I turn to him
and peer into his great eyes
shining with the universes
I fall into them
where I have visions
I see a lass so fair
it is his beloved

she was lost to him
in the first revelation of creation
when her mind was deceived by a dragon

this beast took her to the land of the dead
where she broke
losing herself more each day
inside the truth stirred
but she could not see past the face of the liar

the lady and the blue
were from the land of forever
he said you are still among the lost
you are the lass in the vision

it's time you waken to me
shh it won't hurt
i'll awaken you gently

come with me now to the garden
come silently now
it's almost over

my eyes slowly blink open
I see he is the sun
and I the dawn
that kisses it eternally

Cobalt Blue

Starry Starry Night          
  how hard you fuel              
  their fiery soul;              
             
    blue-black backdrop              
      a feathered crow              
    glimmering in the moon;              
             
One hundred thousand              
million stars, unspooled              
  amid a fabric bolt              
             
  of endless cobalt blue              
             
Starry Starry Night              
  how your brush              
  ensnaring space          
             
  swirls across a canvas              
     blank, capturing              
  what can't be caught              
             
One hundred thousand              
million strokes, in unison              
  create our view              
             
  in endless cobalt blue              
       
Starry Starry Night      
  how your blood        
  did flow forthright        
       
  how the hand gun        
    stained the wood      
  falling from your grip          
       
One hundred thousand      
million drops, flooded red  
  the delta of your wound      
       
  from arterial cobalt blue. . .

Darleen

On a hot summer night
At a canteen in Abilene
I met a girl with blue eyes
With a touch of green

Taking me by the hand
She danced with me
Later, we made love
In an old rusty Chevy

That night I fell in love
With woman named Darleen
An exotic eyed beauty
With eyes of aquamarine

Happy Blues


  
 
I like the blue  
the colour of the sky  
how I used to stare at it    
as the clouds pass by  
   
to disappear from
all of the despair  
when I was feeling
there's no one to care
   
unintentionally    
I fell in love with the blue  
they said feeling blue is sad  
but not in my point of view  
   
the conversations  
I had with the blue sky  
how I promised myself  
I would never hit my wife  
   
clouds  and winds painted  
scenes to my pleasure    
the image of a happy family  
those memories I treasure    
   
you know me from my  
childhood through teenage years  
you saw me smoking weed  
and for that, here. Cheers!  
   
you saw me when I  
brought my girl to this place  
on top of the roof climbed  
through the terrace  
 
   
am laying next to her  
with her hand on my chest  
I calmly watch the blue sky  
I heard you said all the best!
