the expanse of the ocean
the expanse of the sky
a cool blue stone beneath it all
the wind ripping through you
a sleep that engulfs you
peace is also blue
smooth as silk on your tongue
the metallic twinge of silver
so cold, is that blue
a silent winter
filled with loneliness
that quiet, almost indistinguishable sound
just drown in that hue of blue
