Theme in Aqua

Amazing Aqua Colors of the Sea, Just off Key West
I love aqua
on my walls and windowsills.
It is a motherly hue,
asking me to bask in it
or to get up and run.
It is the color of bird shells
lying there broken.
An ocean view,
the tide coming in,
it changes then
becoming dark--gray and dark.
Then I want to run away
the opposite way:
a warm summer day
that holds me close.
