this kind of blue

the sky tonight
so brilliant living
vibrant blue

backdrop seen through 
cutouts of bare 
tree limbs

the kind of blue 
that makes you stop and stand and stare 
for longer than you should without your coat 

because this could be the last time 
you see this exact shade of sky, and you want 
to store its imprint on your eyeballs and in your brain 

in case there is ever a time when you need 
this kind of blue
