day 3. cerulean

Today's prompt is "Cerulean." This word is, in my humble opinion, one of the most euphonious words in the English language. It's soft, with a warm sonic quality as it pours off the tongue. So today, think cerulean. Be cerulean. Be inspired by the sky, or the ocean, a passing blue bicycle, or your favorite blue shirt. But don't think of it as just blue ... think of it cerulean. According to Dictionary.com, the root word was used to refer to not only the sky and Mediterranean but also, occasionally, to leaves and fields. Just picture cerulean leaves, a cerulean field. What can you paint cerulean? What can you write cerulean? What can you bake cerulean? How can you sing cerulean?


Inspirational Quote: "Time writes no wrinkles on thine azure brow; / Such as creation's dawn beheld, thou rollest now." ~Lord Byron

  1. The Eyes Have It

    Cerulean irises, shockingly so,
    stayed my attention on the photo.
    I fell into their pellucid depths,
    down and down I held my breath
    then found I could fly so high
    above the calm blue waves and azure sky.
    How can a pair of startling eyes
    hold such power to contrive
    this soul stirring response of the heart?
    Falling in love with cerulean eyes is not smart.


Thank you so much for your comments! Please feel free to share your thoughts here; I look forward to engaging in conversation with you!
