This poem is the first in a series of three poems.
A mood, a form, a colour, a theme
Lingering, settling – unsettling you
You look up to the sky
And that is blue too
Why do they make blue such a sad colour if it’s everywhere?
Are we sad everywhere-
As an enveloping whole;
As liberation, indulgence and escape
Blue is calm
You stop, sit down, lie down, stay down
Calm. Too calm;
As the day shifts to darker
Almost not blue anymore
But you’re still you
So why blame blue?
