Poetry Friday: Celebrating our new arrival with paint chip poetry

Carol Varsalona at Beyond Literacy Link 
is hosting this week's round-up of poetic goodness. Her “Sweatshirt Gray Day” 
is a lovely paint-chip poem 
of a foggy day at the beach.

I've been intending to write a paint chip poem all month long, but kept forgetting to stop by the paint store. (And then someone mentioned the digital color collections.) Today's poem, 
in honor of grandson Robby's arrival,
 is a collection of blues from the 
Benjamin Moore Classic Colors.

Paddington Blue Blessing

He’s a skyland song,
our morning glory,
a highland breeze
of heavenly peace.

He’s soft jazz
and evening sky,
a paradise view
 of picture perfect.

-Ramona Behnke


  1. Love it! And love the two of you together!

  2. Wow - you and Robby make singing the blues a true-blue joy!

  3. Ramona, your little angel will grow up under the blessing of his paint chip poem that Grandma created. Robbie is adorable all in blue. Heavenly Peace is a wonderful paint chip color that will color Robbie's world a sacred shade of blue.

  4. This is perfect, Ramona, a 'blue sky' welcome to sweet Robby!

  5. Congratulations!!! Love your poem, it's got both Paddington and beautiful BLUES!! Robby is SO sweet!

  6. Congratulations! Your poem is all kinds of perfect!

  7. Congratulations! It looks like you are having a fun cuddletime.
    I like the idea of "skyland," like the sky is its own blue country.

  8. Awww....what a perfect poem for a perfect new arrival! Enjoy!
