Ensemble of Blue
Azure on the eggs in a robin’s nest.
Cornflower in the tipple of a meadow.
Delft on the rim of a porcelain cup.
Aqua in the lilt of a West Indian patois.
Sapphire in the song of a loon.
Slate on the wings of a heron.
Teal in the cry of a jay.
Denim on a rodeo cowboy’s ride.
Cobalt in the belly of a hail storm.
Cerulean in a tube of summer sky.
Navy on the stilettos of a drama queen.
Periwinkle in the giggle of a two-year old.
Turquoise on the finger of an elder.
Indigo in the lullaby between stars.
