Love in Shades of Blue

A Poem

Photo by El Salanzo on Unsplash

I see shades of you in shades of blue
From ocean dark to palest sky
The troubled hint beneath the surface
The stilled tongue quiet to avoid a lie

Mornings first are the lightest blue
Watercolor soft and sweet surrender
How you wake slower than I do
But when you wake you’re often tender
