IN THE AFTERGLOW by Carolyn Glackin I colored you blue with the palette of my love because I find blue so soulful, sensual, and romantic You adorned me with pink twilight kisses that delighted my nocturnal, sentient, starlight soul in an endlessly ongoing manner Our memorable merging resulted in a love whose color shall have no name, because it's purity and beauty can never be defined by the errant ethos of this Earth; thus I shan't allow it to be subjected to such cacophonous conjecture The byproduct of our love was several sunny and salient souls, whose bold yellowy brightness never fails to amaze me; particularly when dark times assail us. Oh how I continue to enjoy their ebullient charm and endearing effervescence! Though my ways may be wayward, and my sojourner soul oft goes on sabbatical; I leave traces of my multicolored hues behind, as a promise of my eventual return And the sanguine shades of unconditional love imprint me with a cookie crumb trail of heartwarming goodness that always leads me right back home to myself, where I bask happily in the afterglow of the harmoniously heartwarming hues.

A WORD FROM MOTHER EARTH by Carolyn Glackin Blessed terra firma From sea to shining sea A land of many nations Meant to live in harmony Awash with oceans blue Adorned with trees of green Graced by changing seasons Some harsh and some serene A myriad of creatures Dwell throughout my land From the grassiest of knolls To the deserts dressed in sand A love for every creature All for whom I doth provide Though some have truly hurt me They are my joy and pride There's the majesty of mountains And the chill of icebergs too Sunny days and starstruck nights Therein my skies of blue A multitude of flowers Add such beauty to this place Their vibrant hues of every color Inspire smiles on every face There are bruises and abrasions Seen all throughout my lands There are wounds that never heal Doled out by bloodied hands Bygone days I've spent in mourning Endless nights I've spent alone While lamenting every loss As I cry and shriek and moan But for each and every grievance I hold tight to my true worth I provide for one and all I am your Mother Earth.

This is my submission for the water challenge, which is part 2 of the Elements Series challenge I'm hosting on @carolyns_challenges ... All are welcome to participate. Simply check out the most recent post on my other account. I've written my piece from the perspective of the ocean. The title "Life Aquatic," is borrowed from and credited to the screenplay writers Wes Anderson and Noah Baumbach for their 2004 film of the same title. "Ship to shore" is a famous saying and although I was unable to determine whom to credit for it, I maintain that I take no credit for it whatsoever. Blessings and thank you for reading.
LIFE AQUATIC by Carolyn Glackin Aqueous living Saline dreams Life aquatic Peaceful, serene
Cerulean visions Depths of blue Awash with creatures If only you knew
Mother Ocean Giver of life Provider for all A balm for our strife
She's the ebb and the flow She's the turn of the tides From ship to shore She's Triton's pride
Empowered and vengeful Beware her wrath Lest your life shall end In a watery bath. Copyright Carolyn Glackin 1/29/2020
