Of blue days and goodbyes

She paints her world
Shades of blues to match
The moods
In fields where flowers bloom
Whispers the song of
A dragonfly.
Joined in harmony
They gather to fly
Gossamer wings reflecting
Memories of a life gone by
Like tears that watch
In silence
Life’s play in acts
One and two
Broken only by intermission
Of a spoken word.
It is here she finds
The inspiration
Painting days like photos
Not to fade
But to bring life to a soul
To a girl who whispers to fireflies
Her sorrow through magic
Of natures gift
Flying higher
To fade away.
