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)

Strange how the sea seems to ease problems and the soul feels at peace! Lovely!

Oh...now I want to go down to the beach and just sit and absorb the blue! But the beach is far away and it's raining cats and dogs outside!

I like your focus on the shades of blue in the water--I hadn't even paid attention to all the different colors. This is a very upbeat story.

Sea does that to us... seems I never can get enough of it. A lovely take on this picture

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.

That's beautiful. Seeing eight shades of blue is preferable to feeling them.
