THE BLUEST AZURE BLUE

The sky ‘twas the bluest azure blue cobalt sapphire as if she really knew No clouds could be seen just the sun shining through betwixt sky and sea shone especially for me The bluest azure blue as if she really knew The rays from the sun reflect upon the sea Like a million trillion diamonds * * sparkling * * shimmering * ** * * * so exquisitely * * *** Wishing I could capture such a moment in time With an easel and a brush but alas this talent was not mine without artistic flair I was grateful for just being there Capturing the colours with the camera in my head To develop and to nurture mind painting instead and slowly as the sun went down setting in the west this was the day of lockdown two for you and me and all the rest Restrictions there were many Treats there weren’t any For who would have thought it just a year ago life changing Covid transformed the life we’d come to know And breathing in the bluest sapphire ~ cobalt ~ azure blue I drift away to paradise to the wonderful World we once knew Written 5th November 2020 on the first day in the UK of Lockdown 2...

Oh such a beautiful savoring of appreciation spills from your artistic pen, Ann, filling my heart with exquisite and bittersweet emotions and my imagination with vivid imagery of sky and sea and "life changing covid". Thoughtful and beautiful poetry. Warmest wishes.. ~Susan

Dear Susan thank you so much for your wonderful comments my friend. I truly appreciate your lovely words and thank you for your encouragment, it means a lot to me, bless you. The sea is so uplifting and I am lucky to live by it so visit most days to lift my spirit. Keep safe Susan, with kindest thoughts Ann xx

You were up early writing this one Ann, yes its time for another lockdown, I dont think this one will be as bad, I saw a lot of cars on the road... They are doing it, to lower the number of infections, so it does not affect Xmas... You described the sky so well..

Yes I do not sleep well so it is a good time to write if my muse will let me. I suppose like many I just cannot see a light at the end of the tunnel although if the weather stays like this it will be much more bearable. Stunning blue skies again here in Eastbourne so a walk by the sea certainly lifted my spirit. Hope you had a lovely day too and many thanks SO for your comments. I really appreciate your visit and thank you my friend. With kindest thoughts Ann xx
