Unmitigated Blues


Poetry is my song and dance
When I don’t wish to be bothered or talked to
Poetry is my friend, with him there are no egos
He lets me be me
Simple, free, uninhibited me
I free my mind openly with poetry
He is my muse
His gentleness dances warmly
With my often random moments of sadness
Cajoling peace in its place
A bird can’t fly with one wing
But I can soar with two
This poem was constructed from randomness
Merely a way to assuage my blues
I am ready for love
At least that’s what the song says
Poetry is my muse
The gentlest way to mitigate my blues

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
