Springtime Blues no.3

I am tres desolee


spring blossoms

morph to snow

when drained of color

against a grey sky

as I morph to lows

after a false high

  1. Oh, this is Beautiful poetry–but it saddens me that you may be feeling low. I stand with you–borrow some courage, if you wish. God bless you abundantly–love, Caddo-Jael

    • Thanks so much but this is nothing. Could use some courage though– appreciate the loan– feel free to borrow from me sometime. Blessings, Ellen xx

      • Sounds like a good deal for both of us!! I’m glad it’s “nothing”–we poets sometimes write what is “current”, and sometimes it’s “just a poem”. It’s not a bad thing to care and inquire, right? God bless you–love, Caddo

      • No, it was very caring of you to inquire and offer prayers. When I say it is nothing, it means I have known far worse. And have heard of yet worse than my worst. So it is all relative. God bless your caring soul, Ellen

      • I do understand–and something just struck me: I recall that often in the past, for me, spring was the worst time of year for the depression. See you soon.

    It reflects a sad but beautiful heart. I always feel for you. And my heart sheds tears. I pray for light to illuminate your path and a song bird to bring a melody of love, life, joy and peace to your spirit.
    Blessings my dear friend

    • As I always say, means so much coming from you. Not a bad down. It is all cycles. But I sincerely appreciate the prayers and you are in mine daily.

    I hate dreary scenes also; it’s so heart-warming to see colour in Nature. Greyness has its own beauty but it’s not for me! Give me the splendour of colour!
