Blue - Poem by Kara Johnstad

Picking up dead brittle flowers along the dirt road
Crushing them. Throwing them gently to the North Wind.

BLUE... the shadow of dust lining your petals.

I wish to be a wandering gypsy.
Listening to the stars and singing with the sun.

BLUE... the shadow of pine needles embedded in the warm earth.

I wish to skate on the Big Dipper.
Slipping and sliding... I wish to...

BLUE... the shadow of ragged drapes against dirty panes.

I wish the crocuses would burst within me.
Creating visions - illusions admidst the cotton.

BLUE... the shadow of my dreaming

BLUE... BLUE... I wish blue roses to my love.
