The Infinite Blue—Word Prompt ‘Blue’

Chitrangada loves to express her moods and emotions, through her poems. Most of her poems are free style and spontaneous with Nature at core

The Thoughts Behind the Poem— Blue

My fellow writer and dear friend, Brenda, has provided us with another wonderful word prompt, for this week—Blue.

Brenda is a wonderful creative writer, and has composed many beautiful poems, on HubPages and other online writing platforms. She is right, when she says that word prompts, help creativity.
Her weekly word prompts have inspired many fellow writers, and there is a continuous flow of good creative writing, by them.

The colour of Nature—Blue

When we think of the Blue colour, we don’t even have to find this colour. It’s all around us—Because, it’s the colour of Nature, the sea, the sky, the ocean.
In this article, I have tried to explain, what the colour, Blue signifies. In addition, there is a poem too.

Nature photography is my hobby, and I am glad to share some of my pictures, of the blue ocean, the blue sky, and the Moonrise, in the blue sky.

Hope you like my little effort, Brenda.

Blue signifies infinity

What does the colour ‘Blue’ signify?

The colour blue is synonyms with the sky and the sea.

It is the colour of inspiration and wisdom.

It also represents depth, imagination, and infinity.

Somehow, it gives the feel of heaven in our imagination.

It has a calming effect on our psychology, and gives a sense of peace.

I don't know for whatever reason, but it is more like a masculine colour.

As such, it is a preferred colour in men' s dresses and uniforms. Light blue has a peaceful feeling with healing effects, while dark blue exhibits power and assertiveness.

According to the Hindu mythology, the Blue colour, is symbolic of infinity and it’s immeasurable, just like the Almighty.

Blue is the colour of serenity and sacredness.

The Heavenly Blue— Poem

(In the following poem, I have addressed the colour ‘Blue’, as ‘You.’)

You are endless,

You are boundless,

You are limitless,

You are ceaseless,


You symbolise infinity,

You ignite hope,

You exhibit divinity,

You reflect wisdom,


You are fascinating,

You are soothing,

You are heavenly,

You encompass the universe.


“Blue has no dimensions. It is beyond dimensions, whereas other colours are not. All colours arouse specific associative ideas, psychologically—material or tangible, while blue suggests, at most the sea, the sky, and they are, after all, in actual, the visible Nature, what is most abstract.”

femi from Nigeria on August 12, 2021:

Blue is gentle, serine, calming, was my favorite color as a teen and suddenly l gravitated to green.

BRENDA ARLEDGE from Washington Court House on August 12, 2021:

Chitrangada

In your article you tell us Blue is the color of nature, the sky, the sea, and the ocean.

You share pictures with us of the blue ocean, the blue sky, and the Moonrise, in the blue sky that you photographed yourself since your hobby is nature photography.

In your poem, "What does the colour ‘Blue’ signify?" you tell us that the sky and the sea both represent the color blue.

Then you share with us the many different feelings the color blue gives us, like inspiration, wisdom, imagination, and infinity.

When we see the color blue we sense heaven & all it's peace surrounding us.

It's also the color of uniforms. Light blue represents peace while dark blue represents power.

Blue equals serenity and sacredness and in Hindu mythology it is a symbol of infinity ~ immeasurable just like the Almighty.

I had forgotten just how peaceful I feel when I look up at the sky or wear a flowing light blue dress, but your poem reminded me.

For some reason the color blue does seem like heaven, yet others wear this color in their uniforms to represent power.

In your poem, "The Heavenly Blue— Poem" you tell us how vast and heavenly the color blue truly is in the world.

It is so fascinating as it brings us hope, shares its wisdom,and soothes us with its divine grace as it crosses the whole universe.

I love this title because the definition of heavenly blue is the piece of the flower which fell from the heaven.

It is blue & comes from the bluest sky.

Your poem clearly shows us how this color embraces the whole universe connecting us altogether.

Great job on this one! I love your display on the color Blue.

Great quote at the end & your hobby of nature photography is fantastic.

I will post a link in the word prompt article.

Rosina S Khan on August 12, 2021:

I love the color blue. In fact, cyan blue is my fave. I really appreciate your response to Brenda's word prompt, "blue". You are right it is the color of nature- the sea, sky, and ocean. It is a serene color but I didn't know it represents sacredness as well.

I loved your lovely poem as well. Thank you for sharing, Chitrangada.

Umesh Chandra Bhatt from Kharghar, Navi Mumbai, India on August 12, 2021:

Very nice. Well composed using the word prompt - blue.

Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on August 12, 2021:

I would like to trade some of our hot, blue sky for some cool gray right now, but I did thoroughly enjoy your response to the prompt. Well done, my friend. Blue and nature go hand in hand, and we reap the benefits and the joys of it all.

Dora Weithers from The Caribbean on August 12, 2021:

Chitrangada, your poem expresses universal truth. It also awakened to me to the fact that I may prefer the sight of the mountains over the view of the ocean, because I prefer green over blue. However, there's no thrill like the thrill of splashing in the blue Caribbean Sea.

Pamela Oglesby from Sunny Florida on August 12, 2021:

I really enjoyed reading your response to Brenda's prompt. This is a fantastic article.

I like what you wrote, and I really like your poem. This really is a wonderful response. Thank you for sharing this article.

Blessings

Liz Westwood from UK on August 12, 2021:
