Blue Feather


You know the phrase, “A little bird told me.” Well a little cat told me, (odie) that there was some speculation that a poem had been written about blue. Well now I love blue. I love poems. And the titillating suggestion that it regarded blue? Well I had to read it. I am speaking of a poem and post by my dear friend, artist, and poet, Dewin Nefol. Here is his poem.

Blue Feather

Singularly unique.

That’s you.

There’s no other Blue

more superlative than you.

Love’s unfathomable cobalt hue

crafted you blue

in lightening hue

electric you






No other

with your mesmerising blue

there’s never another

touching infinite blue

soaring forever in

Sky blue hue,






No other

Blue like you.

No other feather

blushes like you…

…tinted Blue Moon hue

is my sweet memory of you




feather by Love

        How extraordinary! I have indeed visited Dewin’s blog in the past – I think maybe we even conversed through a message or two, but for the life of me I can’t remember where or when… Still, as yet another magical synchronicity like the one that brought me here leads me back to a path I had missed, now I relish the second chance to see where it my lead! Blessing to you, new friend, and thank you!

      • om has shared his art, perhaps that was the connection? Regardless so glad you have visited his blog. He is a sweet & poetic soul.

      • I second this opinion…
        o and om

    Hey SS,

    A single Monarch butterfly courageously rode the transatlantic winds to land in the UK last week and, having finally arrived in Wales relayed a message to me that there was a poem about their favourite colour Blue being posted by a relative back home 🙂

    I was told it was a poem to express warmth and gratitude for the wonderful friendship of a delightful blue friend. Naturally enough, I was intrigued, and had to hurry over the big puddle and see for myself…

    …and was thrilled to see you’d posted my poem, thank you very much SS 🙂 I am charmed, really, thank you!

    And you’ve chosen a wonderful painting to accompany it…the sense of movement within the rich colours is very sensuous, it feels alive, quite amazing. A beautiful Peacock. I really like that choice, and find it most inspiring 😉

    You’ve a great eye for art, and this image is wonderfully portentous.

    I’ve been replying to your wonderful comments this evening, and find myself overjoyed by what you’ve written, and other folk as well…there is warmth and sunshine with each and every word. Thank you

    Your kindness is really appreciated, as to your never-ending encouragement and sincerity. It is a beautiful shade of blue you’ve shone on my poem and given in friendship, thank you Sindy. I hope it never fades 🙂

    Have a wonderful evening. Sweet dreams for when you get to Zzzzz

    Namaste friend
