Food for Thought-Too Much Blue


Is it too much of a beautiful day,
More than I can handle,
The blue sky beyond my eyes,
The breeze takes away,
All I thought,
I might see,
But still there’s more,
Beyond the trees,
A blue beyond the blue,
A hazelnut,
Brownish blue,
That’s as blue,
As the yellow,
By my shoes,
Which I think,
Are a shade,
Of bluey-blue.
