Poetry Prompt 37 – Favourite colour – Blue


Little boy blue a girl once called me

I was in my first teaching year

Must have been obvious to one and all

Blue was my colour of choice.

There’s something warm about a good blue

I don’t always discriminate shades

Depending on my mood which comes first

A light, a dark, a royal or navy.

Blue reflects my personality I’m sure

It gives people an inkling about me

I am warm, and open and pleasant

Well most of the time, and accepting.

My blue today is on my chest

A royal blue to be sure

For I’m feeling very loved today

I am in a crazy place

Lapping it up, can’t get enough

Lets go do this I hear her cry

And I am, for when my heart is open

My blue shines through.

It’s what holds me in good stead,

Helps mediate what’s in my head!
