Killing the blues


RSCN5490

 

Writing,

Sipping my tea,

Joni Mitchell overload.

Paint brush,

Paper patterned bright,

I always love paper.

All an effort to kill

All in an effort to kill

The blues.

Death certificate came

Today.

And nothing seems to

Dull the sad.

The tears my eyes

Hold tight.

Trying to

Kill the blues.

This paper I do not love.

This paper I can’t turn into

Something pretty

Or beautiful.

RIP Little Girl.

    God is able to heal the loss of my niece. Yesterday was just a hard day. She was very young.
    Thanks for the comment!

    As you recently wrote similarly on my poem, I pray our Lord strengthens you this day, in spite of life’s gravity.
