INHALING BLUE

Inhaling Blue 037 (1024x768) (3)Blue is the color

of a Mississippi wildflower

that I need no name for,

and blue is the color

that my soul calls freedom.

This is mystery to me:

The sea of blue appearing

behind closed eyes.

This blue has come from somewhere.

Have I inhaled the sky?

Has it permeated long dark corridors

intent on liberating Leif?

Perhaps the breath of impatient angels

took advantage of my unguarded sleep

intent on freeing the sixty-eight-year-old child

whose longing to fly free is not dead yet.

In this moment

I shake off the doubts of an aging woman,

and vow to receive the gift that manifests

as the color blue.
