Blue Ladies

by Denise D. Cooper

Blue silver headed ladies walk

two by two

by the deep ocean blue

indigo children laugh and play

bouncing balls at old ladies'

royal feet

sky hue’s lift smiles from frowns

in lavender

showing off its immaculate

glory of pink

blue ladies

veined varicose and troubled

sit and sip turquoise double martinis

with azure lips

and sapphire dreams

of an

ultramarine past

tipping beautiful sweetly sweat

clad boys

of navy
