Blue ocean

I am blue, like the lady sang, mood indigo.

This must be what the ocean feels: an infinite expanse of reflected joy, a brightness deep and unattainable.

I am blue with wanting you.

      Thank you! I rather like this piece myself. Am still struggling to pick a book for the next one. I try not to read other people’s entries till I post my own, but I think I will have to make an exception this time – I just can’t resist!

      Thank you! I love these micro-pieces for their starkness, actually. Well, I try to be stark and lush at the same time. I was a little worried that “mood indigo” was too cliche, but it seemed to fit.
