rhapsody in blues

Updated: Feb 25, 2021

February 14 - February 18 Week 60/72

those who study such things say there

are no birds with blue pigmented feathers

it is a trick of structure, air and waves of light

bouncing and bending into all sorts of avian blues

but as several bluebirds grace a bank of snow

I choose to sink into the timelessness of Gershwin

letting the rich notes of azure, blue-violet and

slate blue rush over me in a wave of joy

not caring whether or not what I see is true

Wow! You and Waynno are the soulmates this week. He got a beautiful new Canon camera with a zoom, and he is out roaming the shorelands at least three times a day, sometimes four. He comes back all excited with pictures of water that range from the color of your bluebird to ice in a cooler, and everything in between. Occasionally he gets a bird with an exotic blue. I never realized there were so many blues--skies, water, animals, glass, emotions. Who cares if they are illusions!! You are right.
