The Sacred Blue - Poem by Barry Middleton

questions drift like clouds
across a velvet sky
a what and then a where
and three is asking why

what I know of man
and what I know of earth
tells me the what and where
the why adds up the worth

the sky turns from velvet
into a pastel day
the sun ignites its fire
to melt the fog away

the blue whispers to me
still you may ask me why
I breathe the air to hear
a sacred lullaby

and as the murmur fades
I close my eyes to see
the beauty of the earth
the glory of the sea

the why is joy and life
and I will seize them too
the wonder of the gift
of awesome sacred blue
