Violet bluebell( used to be yellow rose)

Pieces of blue in the sky

Blue sky , serene space 

living beside trees 

so much beautiful blue smiling by tender twigs 

or living too far away from anything it can touch 


blue sky , so much blue sky 

seems to be , appears to be

one vast colour in an open space 

but maybe there are pieces of blue wandering safely side by side 

invisible to the eye 

those separate little pieces 

hiding in what seems to be 

a painting in summer and springtime 

they are all hiding behind the sky 

allowing a colourful chatter to call into the breeze 


whilst the little parts hide and she talks 

they can rightfully rest 

whilst the sky speaks loud and clear into the world 

of its calming space talking tender notes into the breeze 


the segments of blue can smile 

the sky is speaking for them all 

for those little parts of sky blue 

that simply want to rest and hide

      Yes , maybe even like different parts of self resting whilst one voice speaks for them all lol ..

      Thankyou ! πŸ™‚ I think there were probably aspects of my feelings in this .

      We all need to be able to voice our feelings or to be able to speak for those who maybe find it difficult to

      • Saxon Crow

        it would be impossible to read these words and leave them whilst feeling blue .. just as it would be impossible to leave them behind without smiling ..... Neville πŸ™‚

          Wow. Quite the call to rest. Sometimes we don't want the "limelight." It can seem amazing to be like the center of attention or a beloved gem, but it can also be really overwhelming. I mean just look at the plethora of celebs that deal with mental health issues. I enjoy your message, and of course your imagery!

          I love the imagery that you invoke in this poem. I enjoy, each day, spending time on my deck just looking at my little bit of blue sky. It gives me peace and that is what you've given me with your words. In those moments, the blue hides me, makes me smile and gives me rest. I cherish the bits and pieces. Thank You!
