“Blue Without You”

I loved, as a child, lying on my back on the ground. Sometimes I lay on a blanket, sometimes directly on the grass. Eyes closed, muscles relaxed and supported by the warm earth–it made me feel grounded. Opening my eyes and looking up at the sky evoked an entirely different feeling. Peace to your ♥ !

Blue Without You

I lie beneath
a tangible sky, lungs full
of visceral blue.

If only you
were here with me, drowning
in this deep

blue sea, too.
