Blue is

The taste of seawater

And tears;

The sound of the ocean

As it whispers something

Secret and soothing

In your ears.

Blue is comfort

In your jeans;

The smell of sunlight

On your blankets and sheets.

The sky outside your window

Is 24/7 blue

Even when you sleep—

Bright and light at daytime,

Dark inky indigo at night;

But midnight blue

Of a moonlit night sky

Is blue, too.
