periwinkle sky

is separated from

a sapphire blue sea

by mountains of indigo

blue is this island I love

    I loved how you put three different shades of blue together to form the island picture and I adore beaches!!! So how could it not score high. Congrats.

    Thee is a suburb of Chicago known as "Blue Island". It is neither blue, nor is it an island. It's just a few miles south of the Windy City. Good write as usual Francine.
