The Definition of Blue

Soaring through the air
Like I can touch the sky
Happiness is blue

Looking at myself
With tears in my eyes
Sadness is blue

Rolling crashing waves of the sea
In their eternal dance
Movement is blue

The sky without a cloud
Without a bird without a sound
Stillness is blue

The splitting of the sea
The change at sunset
Dark from light
Miracles are blue

I agree. This was great, though! I don't know why it didn't make the mag!

This was great! My favorite stanza of was the third one; it's so easy to put an emotion to a color but I never really thought of blue being movement, and how you said that the rolling crashing waves of the see were in an eternal dance, it was, well, poetic. :)
