Blue




Blue

There is the satisfaction that comes from training hard
and finishing a marathon
and there are the wide blue eyes of pleasure
as a baby discovers the world in his mama's face.

This poem is after Mary Oliver's poem "Yellow" from the book Evidence.  The photo is mine.  If you would like more information about Mary Oliver, click here.
