When the world closes in
(as it frequently can)
lost, once again.
Caught in the headlights
panic will rise

Hard to release
let go of it all
heart beat increase
feeling so small
paralysing fear
claustrophobia arrives
choking the mind

That’s when our power
of free-will can kick in
to make sense of the nonsense
adjusting our fluid
to the rhythm of life
turning our trials to blue.

Blue for the sky
blue for the sea
blue for the peace
residing in me.

My soul-swims in blue

Surrounding myself in your
tranquil hue
I think my way back
to serenity.

Everything I love is blue.  It’s always been my fav colour.

  1. This is beautiful! As most of the planet is ‘blue’ of course it resides in you! “Adjusting our fluid to the rhythm of life”, gorgeous! 🙂

  2. Inspiring, this! I feel I could adopt these sentiments as a philosophy for life. It also works beautifully as a poem. I like it very much.

  3. Blue for a soft touch, blue is peaceful and blue is the color of love! So it is,apparently. How nice Bren!


  4. This really speaks to me. How we can go inside the mind and regain control when the world goes out of control. I like that you use blue to soothe yourself. I use a sparkling aqua river to meditate with when I think I’m getting sick.

  5. Guess no need to feel blue with that kind of blue, can be spun about either way, so I choose to have a nice day.

  6. love that refrain on blue….and the positives of the blue….blue for the peace residing in me….has a really nice feel to it…

  7. Hello,

    Blue is my favorite color too! Oh how blue!
    Although there us a close rival of orange. Loved the blueness of your poem. You’ve inspired me to write a poem now.

    See ya….
