Blue

The Farm
photo by Lori Kerr

Winter blues out my window,
fresh morning breaking,
doves at the feeder,
horses in the lean-to.
The colour blue wraps my winter world,
weaves through my winter heart,
peeks through my winter sky.
Blue.
The colour of goodbye.

  6. Blue indeed does have a certain sadness to it....but hopefully, in time, the blue will brighten into white! I think you are on your way.

  8. Beautiful though the picture is it does have that cold loneliness so fitting for your sad poem of loss.

  11. Very beautiful. I like the photo and how your words make it come to life. I hope none of us turn blue, not even in winter. Let's melt blue into the color of joy. Still, I sure like this poem, even its sadness.

  13. I was surprised at the end line. I thought the persona was lingering in contemplation and was wrapped up in her just being there

    Thanks for dropping by to read mine.
    Much love...

  18. The colour blue is related to something cold, something sad and deep. The subtle sense of poignancy is beautifully portrayed in blue... wonderful, Sherry...

  20. Saying goodbye to the blue of winter is perhaps a good thing to do...a concise and positive poem...it speaks of change, acceptance and renewal...

  21. I see winter as more gray and white than blue but really enjoyed the wistful tone of your poem and its metaphorical quality.

  25. Well, blue is my favourite colour, Sherry, so you had me right from the title. Winter blues are cold, lonely and yes they do seem to signify partings. But where there is a parting there is always the hope of a reunion under a brilliant blue Summer sky :-)
