My Eyes See Blue

An innocent blue sky canopies the earth
Gray clouds infiltrate, silently taking all captive
A covert operation

Blue ice sparkles in sunlight
Bait for the unsuspecting
Stunning yet dangerous

Beware blue eyes most of all
They burn hotter than flames of red
Searing every side

Forget-me-nots lift their heads every year
A gentle thaw in spring “Blue Tuesday” or poems about blue.

Image out my window before spring cleanup.

  3. This says a lot about the intensity of blue. Whether it’s innocuous or intentional, it’s power is there.

    I like how you’ve explored contrasting aspects of blue here Mary, from the ferocity of burning blue eyes to the gentleness of forget-me-nots.

    I love the opening lines, Mary, with their expanse of ‘innocent blue sky’ infiltrated by grey clouds in a ‘covert operation’, a familiar sight here in North Norfolk, although the last couple of days have been intensely blue and sunny. Most of all I love the ‘forget-me-nots… a gentle thaw in spring’ – I can see them in our garden from my window!

    So many ways blue makes its way into our lives. I love the forger-me-nots!
