“Blue Is Me”

I smell sky,
Blue feels like a feather.
Birds can be blue.

Most of the time,
It is mostly a big, moon whale.

Blue could be the sound of wind,
It’s like a whisper.  
I see the darkest water in the ocean
Through the living room window.

I hear the husky howling
In the Alaskan snow, I can
See the reflection of blue
On his fur.

Blue is me.
When I come home from school,
I see my family happy.
That always makes me
Sparkling blue.
