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.
