They’re so distant
Until you’re up close.
The sky and water –
Blend together in a *shade of blue.
It’s such a resistant
Feeling to be so near. You lose
Your shoes and your hair becomes a bother
As it blows across your face so you can’t see the sapphire hew.
Your feet run through the ocean
And the sky pulls you away.
They meet so close –
But yet they pull you into your dreams.
* Karen Kingsbury: Shades of Blue
