Cobalt Blue

cobalt blue
a bolt of blue
into my chest
cool, clear bliss
of blue
spreading
through me
expanding
my lungs
so I can breathe
again
calming my heart
its beat
slowly returning
to regular rhythm
ba-boom
ba-boom
ba-boom

cobalt blue
coming out
of my mouth
fresh new words
rising up
into my head
opening my eyes
to the beauty
of the world
the turquoise sea
pearlescent moon
winding rivers
forests of trees
tall slender birches
great solid oaks
the delicate cherry
as it blossoms
in Spring

cobalt blue
descending
into my stomach
soothing
my feelings
washing
over my body
softening
the muscles
in my thighs
the sinews
in my knees
relieving
the tension
in my hands
as I breathe in
and out through
cobalt blue

  1. Love the words, and the image is wonderful too. It just draws me in, and the color is just so powerful. I love the textures also. Is this one of the moving images? Love it!

    • Thank you Katie. Yes, the image is one of my moving nature shots, but one of those that’s more textural than colourful, so a perfect starting point to become the image to accompany Cobalt Blue!
