Upsoaring spirit inspired by sky-bright blue.  Sometimes the impossible and measureless azure of it can dizzy you. 

Behind the hedge the sky was a bright blue. It dazzled the eyes and got inside the head and exploded there as a wild desire for wings, so that one could take off and soar into it. 

See also my ditty on Seven Steps to Heaven, inspired by a chalked out hopscotch.
