    The finest fabric
    made of the
    coolest ~ deep blue

    A passionate blue
    that decorates the sky
    as it
    slips through
    a gentle carress of
    an open hand

    --draped loosely
    it performs a solitary
    dance with the wind

    ... Saluting life

    ... Embracing death

    A blue ribbon that
    holds on tightly
    to a gasped
    last breath ~

    Who would have
    thought
    -- that such
    a lovely blue ribbon
    would take on the
    form of a
    slipknotted loop
    from which my
    soul
    would be
    hanged
