The Blue Deal

tiny baby
eyes the 
colour of
rain on 
the Brindabellas

limpid pools 
placid in the
churn of
seaside rocks -
the world
unleashed
around you

eyes so big
and still,
they dwarfed
your cheeks;
drew me in
captured me
knitted blue

innocent pouches
the swimming
sapphire trust 

I must
try to live inside,
to deserve

written for Sarah’s dVerse prompt – Blue Tuesday

  1. I love the way this poem swims in blue, with a baby at the centre of it, and the contrast of the baby’s eyes with the ‘world unleashed’ around it, and the safety and closeness of ‘knitted blue’.
