The blue of the vast lake
Meets the blue of the endless sky
In a long straight line of horizon
Some days sharp and clear
Delineating in a knife edge of color
Water from air
And some days the blue of the endless lake
And the blue of the vast sky
Are so close in hue
That they seem the same blue
And fade into each other
Fooling the eye
As though there is no lake no sky
Just blue

for the dverse prompt of 5/11/21: blue

  1. A gorgeous capture of the meeting of the two blues, Xan, the vast and the endless! I love both the horizon that is ’sharp and clear delineating in a knife edge of color water from air’ and the one that fools the eye.

    • I grew up on the prairie and I have never stopped missing that unending landscape. The lake is the only place to find that here.
