A buzzing behind my brain

Remnants of happier days

Yet wistful does not apply

Turquoise in a muddy river

Shining with sun

A silent thanks that it was once mine

Brilliant blinding blue

Sing on the wings of birds

Remember that once the sky touched me

But there is nothing I would trade

For now

Here on the far, safe bank


One thought on “Turquoise

  1. “Turquoise in a muddy river”. I like the sentiment, a reminder to find beauty and hope in even the darkest moments. Kinda like when I’m pushing carts in the rain, in the busiest time of the year and I find a $20 🙂
    (I gave it to a homeless woman, to pass along the feeling of hope and happiness.)
