Blue

The wind containing whispers
Of softly spoken prayers
Caresses my cheek
And I feel the lonesome
Thoughts of others who
Are as blue as
The ocean is deep

  1. Dana, this says so much with few words...blue as the ocean is deep, not an easy place to be.

  5. I would say the same as Heaven. To empathize with those who are lonely is a giving and thoughtful thing to do. Beautifully worded, Dana.

  10. The wind always seems to carry something special on it. Music, smells of the ocean, the warmth of summer... why not "softly spoken prayers". This was nice.
