Amazing Tranquil Blues--By Andrea Dietrich--United States

Amazing Tranquil Blues

Standing on a mountain peak
I find myself surrounded by
a breezy cerulean sky.
How peaceful and restful 
is heaven’s hue.
Nature has breathed her essence on me.

Later I bathe in deep aqua blue
and again I am amazed.
How soothing and serene
is nature’s watery embrace.
How warm the caress 
of a tropical sea.

Midnight’s blue has found me now.
My soul is imbued with tranquility
as I stand again on the mountain peak
gazing up at an indigo immenseness
where myriads of diamonds
glitter their beauty to me.
How wonderful all of it is.

Andrea Dietrich grew up in Iowa and now resides in Utah with a spouse and two cats. She has two grown children and six grandchildren. Having graduated BYU with a Spanish major/ESL minor, she has spent most of her adult life teaching. It wasn't until 2000 that she began writing in earnest and discovering her "niche" as a writer of lyrical poetry. The internet opened up a new world for her, and she has spent nearly a decade now participating in poetry clubs, acting as a judge of poetry contests for various magazines and for the website Shadow Poetry.
