The Colour Blue

There’s ever so much more to blue Than just a color It’s as much an emotion As it is a hue Blue is the tender soul Of sky, flower and ocean And the blessing and bane Of me and you Dye of desperation Paint of despair Wistful wash of wisdom And the pale shade of prayer A name for a pet A descriptor of sea Four letter word…Tho’ The best one that could be It is substance, it has meaning Is nothing, yet so many things… All the while, tis just a color Only a color,...yet a color with wings
