http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f248/jadepandora/geoff%20fishes%20Georgia%20Aquarium00.png When I first saw the color blue
Was it mere months ago?
The span of a lifetime for a crab.
Who could tell?
But I knew it was years ago,
my own lifetime.
Where would I be if I hadn't sensed it
up my spine, on the back of my neck.
If I hadn't felt you walking aimlessly
on the strand.
I was oblivious to the cold as I
quaked from sunset's approach.
The world was monochrome.
Like waves within shells sunken in
wet sand at low tide,
before the last of daylight blinked
from fog rolling in.
I had to know now that you existed.
It happened at breakwater.
I laid eyes on you for the first & last time
(I would never look away again)
when I saw the color blue
Not like I thought I knew.
Nothing was the same then.
Misplacing keys to the prism,
before you and the color blue
pooled at my feet;
a halo of lights from the pier
in its reflection, and all that I saw.
