Shades of Blue
Her denim eyes well up with tears
mirroring the melancholy sky within
blueberry bruises and scarlet wounds ache
not visible outside – but hidden
A heart bleeds smalt notes – a dirge
Joy jaded in her younger life
Betrayal and terror on slate pages
Regret for having been his wife
How true his cyan eyes had seemed
once upon a time…
when opalescent bells rung midst cast rice
all, back then, appeared fine
But even serene and sapphire seas
can churn and turn on a dime
burying the strongest Titanic – complete
under glacial and mercurial waves of time
Blue days follow blue nights
Dark shades of moods swirl around
spilling onto pages once azure
until a new book is bound
Topaz ink with cursive letters flow
joining others to form words of hope
Love’s Author answers plaintiff prayers
mapping a new road on which to go
A palette of poison blues is put to rest
as she picks a more heavenly hue
No longer needing his permission or smiles
turns away from steely eyes of blue.
I suspect we all know someone who has been badly treated and betrayed in love and marriage.
This poem is dedicated to them.
May they find healing and the road that is best for their recovery and peace.
Blessings of Healing Peace ~ Wendy
But if the unbeliever leaves, let him do so.
A believing man or woman is not bound in such circumstances;
God has called us to live in peace.
1 Corinthians 7:15
I would like to end today’s post on a lighter note…
here is a picture/haiku in appreciation of my own husband
who has a desire to bless and cherish me.
If you are looking for a new blog to check out, I have started another photo and Scripture one at:
It posts one photo at a time with a bible verse right on the picture (like above).
Short and sweet…
