Caerulean, In Search of Good in the Sky
"But what you don't know
that sweater is not just blue
it's not turquoise
it's not lapis
it's actually cerulean"
— Miranda Priestly, The Devil Wears Prada
Just the repetition of the words
"cerulean blue" “cerulean blue” is magical
the "Pusher" villain in X-Files episode 17 season 3
repeats "cerulean blue" lulling his victims to do his will
“Cerulean” [səˈruːliən] between azure and a darker sky
strong greenish blue with variations
cobalt chromate a darker greener “cerulean” blue or cobalt turquoise
a paler hue called the "color of the millennium"
"cerulean frost" in a special set of metallic colored Crayola crayons
"Cerulean" in 1590 English from the Latin "Caeruleus"
dark blue, blue, blue-green derives from "Caerulum"
diminutive of "Caelum" heaven and sky
A pigment found in late eighteenth century
blue with copper, cobaltous oxides, azurite and smalt
all in attempts to paint the sky blue
with colors by Swiss chemist Albrecht Höpfner's
“cerulean blue” in 1789 by the German name "Cölinblau"
then in 1860 a Brit, George Rowney's "coeruleum"
cerulean's hue, permanence, opaqueness
shines in Berthe Morisot 's painting
of a blue coat on a woman in her Summer's Day
Repeat after me “cerulean blue” flies in nature
in the Cerulean blue cuckooshrike
Cerulean blue kingfisher, Cerulean blue paradise flycatcher,
a Cerulean blue warbler
and Cerulean-capped manakin, a native of Peru
Now do good in the world

I am looking for guest blog opportunities and a position as poet-in-residence. My current project is writing dictionary poems using words in different languages for the English word "peace." You can read some of my poems on Poemhunter .
As poet-in-residence I would write poems on different words in different languages and broadcast them throughout the social media blogosphere. Each poem would link back to your site where the word or language appeared.
I would expect some sort of stipend and a six month to one year placement. Please contact me for details if your organization is interested in having a poet-in-residence to help get your message out. Nervewhisperer@gmial.com
