The Blue Hour

Everything is coated with a blue hue,

my eyes take a while to adjust to the color.

The shadows seem to dance more,

as if fairies are coming out to play.

The wind rustles trees into speech,

they creak in protest of the night,

like old grandmas complaining of

their cold and rusty bones.

The blue hour doesn’t last very long,

as if it is a blanket that hides the light.

It is a film, like sepia, that turns things

blue for just a moment, like an old picture.

The blue hour, when everything feels possible.
