Blue silk

Sometimes

The sun lies itself

Like blue silken sheets

On a bed;

Inviting reflection, repose

And rest.

I wish Oscar could see these enchanting colors even with not the same intense or spectrum as we see. This is one of my favorites among all your wonderful posts. Have a happy weekend.
