We broke in a moment through the fog
The color up in the hills caught me off guard

Driving so high above sea
There's no reflection to hide what’s underneath
Just a window to the deep
And I could see

The kelp waving wild and free
Drowning the things I let get to me

I give myself hostage to the dark
The worried look in your eyes caught me off guard

I’m learning there’s trace amounts of blue
In every color but less when I’m with you
You don't let it puncture through

And you lay me down
In the perennial offerings
Down in the reed grass and poppies
In the perennials' calming bloom
