the fuck is azure anyway?

people might say
i spend too much
time
looking at
and thinking about
and writing about
the sky
i know
this
has always been
the case
but again
this morning
i did
it
and it
reminded
me
of
you
driving along
the harbour
pinkredness
to the south
pointing out
the dangers
the problems
lurking
and hiding
out in the open
but that picture
to the north
lady
cool perfection
white houses
white snow-covered
everything else
in an unshaken
globe
and the
(what i think is)
azure sky
looks like
a blue
only found in
museums and galleries
that
i would
probably
attend
with you
after some
convincing
because
more of life
i think
is spent
blindly reminiscing
on those
moments of
sheer
exquisiteness
than is spent
actually
experiencing
and basking in
them
i think
that is sad
but i also
think that
with you
i
could really
balance
that scale

    Babes take it from a girl who thinks that her opinion is the only one that matters, you can NEVER spend too much time looking, thinking and writing about the sky. Also i agree with Ben!

    Ok, it’s official: We love you.

    Great post, poem, word doodle? Whatever it was I loved it.

    Adding you to our blog roll which really means nothing, but will remind me to check your blog often.

    This one is great. I love the part where we spend more time reminiscing about the good times than actually experiencing them.

  6. Molly says:

    this is your best yet.

  7. I honestly don’t think it’s ever possible to look at the sky too much. It’s so easy to stare above and get completely lost in it all.

    I really love this one, Peter. “In an unshaken globe” my mind created that image…without even thinking it through. I love that image.
    Awesome.
