Blue: A Poem by Hritika Bhatnagar

The ink in my pen is indigo blue.
Yes, I write my poetry in cobalt blue.
I prefer to paint my nails neon blue.
And the language I speak is Persian blue.

The colour of my god is blue.
His calmness and unwavering persistent nature are light in blue.
He is omnipresent, just like the skies, it's sky blue.
He sleeps on the serpent's coils, floating on the milky ocean, its every shade of blue.

The stars sparkle in the night sky, it’s midnight blue.
From an astronaut’s eye, the Earth, it's marble blue.
Over time my thoughts are turning yinmn blue.
And I am beginning to take on a blue hue.

Blue has become my tone of happiness.
It has tinted me with quietness and peace.
My breath has become still as ever.
Holding a state of permanence in me.
