In the Stars

Star-gestured WishesIn the Stars

Waves of blue behind us,
searching the night sky
we found blue nebulae.
We found each other.

The stars were ours
from the moment we met.

This poem is my response to Blue Tuesday, the prompt from Sarah at dVerse Poets Pub, which asks us to consider “blue” in our poetry.

I’ve written hundreds of poems for my wife, so what’s one more? I bound the first hundred or so for her as “The Nebulous Collection.” Blue has always been a significant color for both of us. (Although, I have been known to favor orange!)

  1. I think your romantic side is a delicious part of who you are. My wife was a bit embarrassed by my romantic poetics, so I gave up on that approach.
