dVerse — quadrille — Blue and Clouds

Blue seems so far away,
yet here I stand, immersed.
Seen from a distance; clear,
yet felt so murkily within.

Clouds, wing-fluffed
mystical messengers;
cushioned protectors
from punishing glare.

Blue-clotted canvas
smoothed under moving
yet constant angel brushes —
watery dilutors of woe.


Kim from Writing in North Norfolk is today’s host of dVerse.  Kim says:
This week, I’d like you to take any meaning, form or compound of the word blue, and write a poem of exactly 44 words (not counting your title), including the prompt word.

  1. oh wow! Just wow! I was sure I was going to say the second stanza was my favorite and then I read the third! Angel brushes and I can see the effect of the water on the paint…blurring it softly. Diluters of the harsh, the woeful. Just a lovely poem.

  2. The image you chose reminds me of a shimmering cool pool, Lisa. I haven’t swum in a pool for years so, yes, blue does seem far away! I love the phrase you used for clouds: ‘watery dilutors of woe’.

  3. Wow, we all are hot to pen some poetics. I love this /clouds, wing-fluffed mystical messengers.” I’m all excited about getting into the saddle again.
