Poetic in Blue
by Gayle Potter
Picture postcard, a watercolour palette of mottled blue hues spreading across the expanse of sky.
Distant mountains dominate the skyline, mesmerising, a perfect frame and the scenery, envelops me.I feel the cool shades nurturing and cocooning my frazzled senses, wrapping me in a tranquil blanket, serenity itself. The lake mirrors the sky and only a gentle splash breaks the surface as fish rise to greet the day. There is a feeling of hush, of whispered secrets in the new morn as I sit on dewy grass and contemplate life. A cool gentle breeze teases the leaves and grasses rustle at the foot of the tree trunk sending a shiver of anticipation. This ethereal world so removed from the hustle and bustle of reality, fades away as dawn and gentle bird song herald the day.
