Eyes of a Muse…

blueeye

Her eyes
were not the cobalt
of the water
nor the cerulean sky
not even the
indigo of
the way his heart
ached for hers
it was the
steel-blue from
The heart of a blade
it was gracious forbearance
in the face of the egregious
violence of a storm
it was the zaffre in
center of the fire
The blistering blue
part of a flame
it was the sapphire
of twilight
the only time on this
planet when the mundane
felt arcane
and bravery
was immortality
