Nature’s palette from sea to sky…
Steel blue waves crest and fall
Baby blue graces the horizon
Cornflower deepens the view
Azure brightens and heightens
Cerulean crowns the sky in full bright glory.
A walk along the lake today brought a stunning view of the water and sky decked out in various hues of blue. The lake grounded it in a dark steel blue as the waves met the shore. Then the palest of blues was at the horizon. Then ombre of blue continued to the top with deeper and vibrant tones. It looked like a painting with the subtle passing from one hue to the next. It was truly beautiful!!
Often times people will say- the sky is blue today. Well, which blue sky are you seeing? Which mood of blue is nature’s character that day?
Next time you hear that, please pause and take a moment to soak in that blue. Can you give it a more specific name than just blue?
