New reply from Susan Katz

<p>Thank you for sharing your meaningful poem with me.  And, of course, for submitting it to be considered for Featured Poem of the Week.  Your poem has a lovely flow to it (like the water) and certainly is emotional and dramatic.  I wish you a very happy and creative day, Susan</p>

"The Blue"

<p><strong>" THE BLUE "</strong></p>
<p>"I am part of a divine plan"</p>
<p>Said my folks,</p>
<p>But I wanted to dive out,</p>
<p>Out of the plan and into the Blue</p>
<p>And so I did,</p>
<p>I dived into the magnificent Blue,</p>
<p>It felt cool,</p>
<p>I held by breath and opened my eyes</p>
<p>I saw it,</p>
<p>Endless water everywhere .</p>
<p>I pushed my hands</p>
<p>My leg, my feet,</p>
<p>No one around </p>
<p>Just me and the Blue water.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Then it struck me </p>
<p>The icy truth</p>
<p>Many dived, into the deceitful Blue</p>
<p>No one came out, not one soul.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I looked down </p>
<p>Saw nothing, nothing</p>
<p>But dark, cold and bitter</p>
<p>No longer, could I hold my breath</p>
<p>My heart raced, at three hundred</p>
<p>Blue weighed me down </p>
<p>As I tried pulling out.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I heard voices,</p>
<p>Somewhere distant:</p>
<p>"Run dear, while you can</p>
<p>Never seize, to turn around</p>
<p>The Blue'll seduce you</p>
<p>And that's how you'll lose you."</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I pushed my hands, </p>
<p>Couldn't move an inch</p>
<p>Intoxicated, by the Blue</p>
<p>My heart raced no more</p>
<p>My lung wanted to give out</p>
<p>Pulled into the gravity</p>
<p>Down I went.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I saw a glimpse, over my head</p>
<p>A ray of sunshine,</p>
<p>A hand of hope.</p>
<p>I reached out</p>
<p>And felt warmth</p>
<p>I felt at peace</p>
<p>No longer intoxicated</p>
<p>And out of the Blue.</p>
<p>Blue never got it, my soul or my heart</p>
<p>I am part of a divine plan</p>
<p>It was bliss indeed, at last. </p>
<p> </p>
