I love the word cerulean [suh-roo-lee-uh n] for two reasons: the way it sounds, cool and peaceful, and also its meaning. Cerulean is an adjective that means "deep blue; sky blue; azure". Blue (any shade, really, but especially a deep sky blue) just happens to be my very favorite color. :) Here are some examples of the word in a sentence:
Digging her toes in the sand,
she gazed out at the cerulean sea.
I painted my bedroom cerulean,
a serene color to remind me of sunny, summer days.
The child's kite resembled a big, colorful bird
against the cerulean sky.
How would you use the word cerulean? What else can you think of that can be described that way?
