Turquoise Blue

It’s that certain colour, that reminds you of your holidays

The colour of the sea at the certain time of day

up in the sky, when right foot dipped its toes to see if it was

ready to take a dip in the water, or

quench your thirst with a cool drink by the sands

under the water – the smallest of fishes circle your toes to say hello

out ahead – there’s great shoals – but this small shoals

intrigued by the sight of your feet

so you follow them into the warm blue green

enjoying watching them nibble at your feet – it tickles!

Turquoise Blue

turquoise

A tale of a turquoise butterfly

To some , who watch you

under a binoculars lenses – your winged colours

reflect a wonderful green-blue iridescence

quite breath-taking at both day and night

usually the watcher would spend an age in their hide

only coming out to grab an

instant photograph on their camera

something to show the folks back home

evidence of what they were waiting an age in that field for
