My Favorite Color

It is the color of the lake

And a color in the sky.

When I look into

My daughter's face,

I see this color in

Her eyes.

It's a primary color

On the color wheel;

Mixed with green,

Then we have teal.

Then during

The moment of a

Melodramatic movie,

Or while listening to a

Saddened song,

It brings on the

Melancholy feeling,

As the

Optical streams of

Water last oh, so long.

Blue is my favorite color,

Like the berries in my bowl.

With the greatest expanse

On a cloudless day,

I then feel calm,

And completely whole.

This certainly didn't leave me feeling blue! You used a powerful color to produce a powerful piece off writing.

It seems to be the most popular color. With out it we would not have green or purple. And it is the color of the blood in our veins. Thanks to everyone who read my "Blue" poem.

Oh how beautiful, the blue. I am reminded of my blue skies of childhood, as they always seem to be such a beautiful blue. I am glad is it not a sad blue poem. Voted Way Up

God Bless. In His Love, Faith Reaper
