Blue on Blue on Blue

The wake peels off the back of the ferry
Shot pure white, like a waterfall
Shallow waves curl into the glimmer
And disappear from view

Layers of mountain rim the sea
Receding into the salt air and sky
We stand together in the wind
And take it in, blue on blue on blue

Tourists line the deck, speaking in foreign tongues
Jacking cameras at the sights
We chat with a family from Israel
There’s a couple from Boulder, too

Some of the passengers aren’t tourists at all
Moving from point A to B, Whittier to Valdez
Stretched out on bench seats
To dream… blue on blue on blue

Moving, distance and time are deceptive
We study a peak rising from a steep forest
Rising from the water, rising from underwater
We turn around and there’s a new island

We’re traveling as grandparents now
We may not be living as hard anymore
But we ride on a love as deep as this sound
Me and you, blue on blue on blue
