Blue Trinity: ma vie en bleu

Look up at the lone desert's sky vibrant Blue
Where the sumptuous cotton clouds were long gone.
Hugging the undulating silent sand dunes,
The azure sky tenderly whispers its innocent secrets.

Uncover the bruised skin, purplish, troubling Blues
Dark clots conflagrate at the wounded flesh
Paying solemn homage to life's incidental blunt edges.
A creature's ultimate sacrifice to love, joy, survival...

Dive into the deep ocean's calming Blue
Swim among immense whale's haunting hymns,
Ethereal chants reverberate Neptune's inverted cathedrals
Witness the meditative Blue absolved in eternity.

    Ahh, hurts me to find this lovely poem sits all alone, without even a comment to grace it's shores. It's very lovely and I would kiss it's hand and introduce it to all my friends, if it were a person. But since it's only a poem, I do the best I can..(smile) (Report) Reply

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
if I look
