Back in February 2016, I lost my beautiful and loving mom to pancreatic cancer. 😭

To deal with that pain, I started creating the “Feeling the Blues” jewelry line.

Here’s a poem I wrote…

The Color Blue

In between violet and green

Is the color, blue

With my very eyes, I’ve seen

The many variants of this hue

💙

There’s cobalt, dusk and aquamarine

To name but a few

The numbers so obscene

I had absolutely no clue

💙

I’ll show you what I mean

Just follow on through

Read on your screen

Keep your eyes glued

💙

Saturation and intensity of light

Cause a waterfall of cascades

From dull to bright

With tints, tones, and shades

💙

If tint is white

And tone is grey

We add black as night

This is a shade

💙

Check out this view

A sky of sodalite

Birds flying in a queue

Such the sight

💙

In the bayou

The water a rich apatite

An owl – who who

With fireflies in flight

💙

As we continue on

This poem on blue
