Blue Cures Blue

once in a blue moon
sadness burdens to harass
freaking aches of heart

demented brain dithers
seized in between the demon
and the deep blue sea

water bed offers
an escape from feeling blue
satiating sorrowed souls

zest of parted friends
oceanic quest quenched offering
a whale of a time

blue ocean ripples
ambience of silent zen
calms mind and body

radiant smiles flare
under the infinite sky
serenity unfurls
