Shades of Blue

by Jacob Webb

Blue is a morning fog – hiding questions refusing to be answered.
it is the symphony of blasé.
Blue is the color of mourning and sorrow; thought, memory.
a footprint marking the spot.

cold and independent… or is it deserted?
sweet like the juice of berries soaking the palate.
the gesture of a thoughtful friend, a searching

for answers and finding them in layers.
the shades of Blue.

the lonely howl of a wolf,
the mysterious song of a whale.
It is finding serenity and peace

living in shades of Blue
