Painting Deep Blue

Chromatic symphonies await quiet eyes
Seven veils removed
So we dance
Swish swish
Unabashed
Naked
We have?
No rewards
Sans colors complimented
Sans joy revealed
Sans harmony constructed
Naught else
Not inhibition
Not soul searches
Not social mores
And so we dance
Swish swish
Distract the sun
paint the moon
velvet-shoe shuffles
moss-carpets
Swish swish
Swish swish
Fill the quiet void
happy humming minstrels
angel choirs in great legions sweet
And breathe
One two three
One two three
We move
Silence be momentary
Silence be transitory
Silence be but a pause
Sans pain
Sans doubt
Sans void
One and two and dance
Three and four and step
Swish swish
Swish swish
Swooorsh!
SWOOOOORSH!!!!
Grinning kids kicked circles in the sand with tender toes
Under a great blue cloudless sky
and distant mystery time
lunged aquamarine
Swoorsh!
on warm waiting beaches
Beside the heaving-shimmering
we dipped in blue
it drew us
Big strokes
giant brush
consuming and careless
Swoorsh!
A sandpiper trotted comically
dancing in the tide
dodges the rush
Stumbling from seafloor rasped knees
barely-bouyant refugees
ears squealing
lungs burn
coughing titanium foam
taunting
twinkling
surface
Swoorsh!
Riptide grabs
smearing ultramarine
here we go
bubbles and foam rush past
sliding beach-ward and back
receding again til
release
Hot sun
dry sand
panting
coughing
resting
Wide-eyed and thankful
breathing free
Swish swish
Hazy horizon past
Blue faded hues
our
thunder on the beach
shimmering cobalt riptide
who knew?
