Eight Shades of Blue

Eight shades of blue on the water. She absorbed them through vision, sound, and the waves on her feet. She forgot the worries of the day.  (138)

  14. Living on the Gulf of Mexico, the sea can be a daily inspiration. And the blues change their shades from moment to moment. Yes, it is almost an escape from whatever......

    Thanks for a peaceful 'take' on this.
