Word-High July: Bughaw



I’ve been eaten up
by the expansive sea
and endless sky,
since you’ve been gone.

  1. I adore your poems. =) This one is bit different. Normally, my emotions are decidedly one way or another; today’s verse has me mixed between the tranquility of the color blue and the often volatility of the deep ocean. I have a fear for drowning b/c I didn’t learn to swim until adulthood. Curse you mother, father. But, love you to death too. PS. Hope you are well, Rosemarie, and that you had a good 4th if you celebrated it. ❤

      1. Ah! Sure, may be I can pick up some word in my mother tongue and write a small poem. I can’t give any time frame, but the concept seems very interesting to me.

  2. As a little being, your speaker felt important to him, had a place in the world’s vastness. Yet now thT vastness of ocean and sky swallows her, she doesn’t feel special anymore. Sad but a beautiful metaphor.
