Crystal light blue of infinite skies
to the deep blues of the ocean
on tropical islands.

The color of beach town trim
seaglass picked up along the way
seashells and seagrass hues.

A gemstone said to be discovered
in mermaids treasure chests
revered by sailors ever since.

The gem that promises lasting relationships
tradition promises a happy marriage
the color in my daughter’s wedding party.

Aquamarine is certainly a color that expresses YOU! Nice poem.
