Some Shade of Blue

I would need some time, to give it its due,
It’s a daunting thing you ask of me.
The seas are more than just some shade of blue

Oh, how would I render such a vibrant hue,
When seas reach the shore at dawn? At three?
I’d need some time, to give it its due.

In colors cleaved only with God’s imbue, 
This palette of mine must try to decree.
The seas are more than just some shade of blue.

There are whitecapped curls of waves to construe 
As they crash against the rocks prettily.
I’d need some time, to give it its due.

Certainly more time than you’d think it’s true. 
Shades vaster than the horizons to see.
Yes, I’d need some time, to give it it’s due.
The seas are more than just some shade of blue.

  1. Oh yes….I soooooooooooo agree! Having spent 5 winters in Bermuda, I truly understand this. The ocean there is myriad shades of blue….and even just standing still looking out….from aquamarine to the deepest shades of navy blue, almost black and so many in between. What a palette!

  2. Raivenne,
    As villanelles go, this is one of the absolute best I’ve read and suits the persona’s state of mind perfectly as she contemplates what’s asked of her creative prowess.
    pax,
