Shades of Blue


how many shades of blue
do you think there are
I see endless
when we get to the end of endless
how many shades of white
do you sense there are
most likely endless


consider green
how many greens do we find in our world
I find that greens are
endlessly
endless

  2. I have always surmised colours are endless. You reinforced it. I like that!

    weeks trample on each other like magazines


    Please don't forget to post your creative works at Monday Poetry Train Revisited too!

  3. I really like all the shades of blue in your first photo. I also like the idea that there are endless shades of blue and green (and other colors).

  5. Awe---all of those colors are marvelous. I especially love the first picture since blue is one of my favorite colors.

  6. Mmmh, so many colours. Too many to count! When I started cross stitching again I remember visiting a haberdashery and being overwhelmed by the choice of colours available. I started a rhino cross stitch years ago. There were over 50 shades of brown, cream/white, grey and green in that one project. I must admit I gave up around 3/4 of the way through. It became too confusing.

  9. Tammie,
    Your words ring true as there are so many shades of color in nature.
    The water is so crystal clear it is breathtaking.

  11. Thank you for sharing. Our minds cannot comprehend and therefore we stand in front of a mystery of sorts. How many colors are there within one shade of blue is like asking how many stars there are in the sky. :)

  12. Definitely endless. And your photos help to understand that concept.

  13. What about all the shades of blueish grey? Don't they say there are 40 shades of green? ;-) The Indian pipe is absolutely stunning.

  14. Three wonderful pictures. That water looks refreshing.

  15. I like to think of colors as something more, evoking interpretations beyond the visual. Your photos allow me to do that. The mirror of the lake surface might even allow me to walk on water.

  16. I love blue, I had a color analysis done, and she told me that blue and dark colors are my colors. So my ward robe is full of blues.

    I like that Indian pipe. When does it bloom?

    ReplyDelete
  17. It does take blue along with so many hues to paint nature...and at times it is hard to see where one starts or ends as they blend together on the canvas of life.

  18. This poem fills me with hope and peace. Thank you.

  22. Love those indian pipes - they are parasitic plants, aren't they? That's why they are white - they don't need chlorophyl to make their own food, cos they steal it. So many shades of colours - lovely photos.

  35. It's just as lovely as on my first visit. I didn't realize this was for One Single Impression. I've not participated in far too long, but have decided to share Molly's Blues at Small Reflections ... and hope to get myself back into the OSI habit.
    Hugs and blessings,

  42. Dear Tammie--
    These photos are remarkable! And I really loved your ideas of nuances of color. I often think about the many shades of green as I drive through our local deserts--there are thousands of shades of green--just in the desert!

    Thanks again--subtlties become you!

  43. Do you know Tammie that I visit your blog for a peaceful moment and a time for reflection. I find your photos breathtaking and your words are very inspiring. There is so many colours in nature and too many to count. It will be Autumn soon and then nature will be full of different shades of reds!
    I can't wait to see some of your photo's then!
    You are very lucky to live in Montana!!:)
