~Sappy Daze~ Day 4

Ode to Blue 

Blue marks the sky 
and hides the ocean. 
It hides the depths 
of a person’s emotion 
by saying they feel blue, 
though blue flames burn 
brighter than red, and 
blue whales are 
the largest animal 
on Earth. But
spotting blue in nature 
on our blue planet 
is a once-in-a-
blue-moon experience. 
Blue is made from 
mankind. Blue cheese 
is injected with 
mold and the rhythmic 
beat of the blues blares 
from band instruments. 
Both are infectious 
but still, nothing beats the 
out-of-the-blue melody 
from a Blue Jay chanced 
upon in the sky.

Hello! I'm Sappy, a Junior majoring in Creative Writing with a focus on poetry. Most of what inspires me comes from life experiences, which is actually what inspired the title of my series. ~Sappy Daze~ is a collection of weekly poems that peeks into how Sappy passes the days with a sappy daze (._.) Though writing is my main art form, I'm also interested in music, drawing, and film. I've written reviews for musicals and concerts on campus as a writer for art[seen]. I created an Instagram (@sappy._.daze) for the poetry I'll post here. Thank you for checking out my page! I hope you enjoy :D
