Cobalt Blue (original)

For us deep blue was cobalt blue, for me a color of love                                                         and longing. For many years Mom hunted bottles in Hawaii,                                          first with Dad and then later with Mr. B., as we called him.

    This is a delightful poem, Andy, especially for me as I, too, am a collector of cobalt glass bottles, tile shards, sea glass, Asian cups and plates and bowls. Your words really resonated with me. Thank you.
