By Anne Whitehouse

PROMPT — Who am I today?

Dusty, worn blue,

sun-faded house.

The ghost of the sea

breathes over it at night,

leaving a taste of salt.

When I hung up the clothes

I had brought with me,

I saw they all

were shades of blue.

This is the color

I come back to,

the very hue

of my soul.
