Mystic Blue


lost in the blueness
of the sky, the sea, and your eyes

i want to stay here
until the end of times …

in this moment, when all is perfect
all is forgiven

bitterness washed away
by waves of contentment

my heart, pure, renewed …
and forever yours


We just got back from a wonderful getaway in Mystic Connecticut
where everything is the bluest of blue
... blue is such a soothing, mystical color ...


... the sky, the sea ...


... the picturesque port ...


 ... the boats, the sails ...


... where art imitates nature and inspires ...

  19. Your focus on blue is an excellent technique to convey the emotion. Here the colour takes on a mood less melancholy and reels in the tranquility of experience.

  26. Mmm, happiness is as poetic as heartbreak, sometimes more so, when the sea and the sky come into it.
