Feeling Blue

Oh take me away
to a white sandy beach
turquoise fairy-tale water
lapping,
gently at its shores

Oh take me away
to a quiet forest glen
azure skies
peeking,
through the canopy

Oh take me away
anywhere but here
with stress and angst
coloring,
everything grey

Oh take me away
on a wing
or a prayer
or maybe
I'll just slip
away
to there.

This is Alphabe-Thursday Summer Rainbow School.  Today is Blue.  Head on over to Jenny to join the fun!
