1261. The color blue is everlastingly appointed by the Deity to be a source of delight. ~John Ruskin

blue, the color of sea and sky
blue, a constant color in our lives
blue, the collective color of the spirit
blue, the only color which maintains
its own character in all of its tones
blue, the color of peace and calm

indigo, the deeper blue of the
mystical borderland of wisdom
indigo, the color that turns blue
inward to increase personal
thought or profound insights
or instant understandings
white blue, the color of
communication with others
blue, blue green, and green
sacred colors for some peoples

blue, dynamic and dramatic
blue, engaging and exhilarating
blue, that in some places is
a symbol of mourning or
sacrifice or warding off evil
blue, that in other places is
thought to correspond with
the 4 seasons, the 5 primary
elements, the directions,
blue, the color often associated
with feeling sad or unhappy
blue, a soothing element
in gardens everywhere

And we even experience
the color blue in all our senses:
Blue is the look of a cool spring day.
Blue smells like a freshly bloomed flower.
Blue feels like a cool breeze on a hot day.
Blue tastes like tasty, sweet blueberries.
Blue sounds like gentle, falling rain.
Blue is the wonder in our minds.

…the seventy elders of Israel went up and saw the God of Israel. Under his feet was something like a pavement made of lapis lazuli, as bright blue as the sky. ~Excerpt from Exodus 24:9-10  ✝

**Blue, as in these wondrous, tie-dye morning glories in my yard

  1. Beautiful pictures. Praise to the Word BLUE
    “What is blue?” asked a child, so very small.
    To which a man answered, “Blue is several things, I will tell you a few, but not all,”
    “Blue is the ocean, the rivers and streams,”
    “Blue is the “splish splash” of water, which in the sunlight will gleam,”
    “Blue is the flavorful taste of a seafood cuisine,”
    “Lobster, shrimp, and crab, found beneath the deep blue sea,”
    “Blue is the aroma, of blueberry pie,”
    “Blue is the immense, infinite sky,”
    The child delighted, cried thank you and ran away,
    And left the man brooding on the words he had just finished to say
    He knew that though these things he had said were true,
    There was more than just joy when it came to blue,
    “Blue is the feeling you get when you’re down”,
    “Blue is the sadness that engulfs you and forces you to frown”,
    “Blue is the emotion of misery and pain”,
    “Blue is the dark dreary day, in which it will rain”,
    Another man saw, what the former had said,
    And pondered within himself, he pondered in his head,
    He knew that blue was not quite, as bad as this man thought,
    Blue was a sensation of music, burning fiery hot,
    Blue was the blues, the wonderful noise,
    That flowed from the soul, and out through the voice,
    Out through the saxophone, piano, trumpet and bass,
    Blues shook the hearts of every human race,
    Blues was a way to channel depression and shame,
    Without blue, the world would never be the same,
