Tender Things

spots on a fawn
the smell of a burning campfire
bees on orange clover
a coyote call at dusk
random lines of Neruda
the way my babies looked while sleeping
drops of rain against the evening sun
cups of steaming coffee
warm blankets and cool nights
iridescent feathers
summer storms in the distance
handwritten letters
fading roses
memories of your long, grey braid

a blue moon
blue-violet hydrangeas
the blue hour of day
indigo buntings and bright jays
the word “cerulean”
dewy summer blueberries
tiny robin eggs
glimmering saphires and aquamarines
delicate bluebells and forget-me-nots
antique blue and white china
translucent butterfly wings
worn denim
cobolt glass bottles
silver bracelets with turquois stones
blue velvet
a cloudless sky in july
