Bold in Blue

In a grayscale world

he is Adriatic blue

with a cobalt aura

Deep sea pigments

eyes can barely probe

Bleeding technicolored streaks

onto dull canvases


Forever floating in sapphire oceans

Basking in moon glow

Sinking to soft sand bottoms

Refreshing. Relaxing. Reviving. Reassuring.

Sentient, tingling underwater

Ultramarine and coral mesh lavender

as tantalum tides cradle dreams


– Breelyn Shelkey
