.◊. singin’ the blues {redux}

comin’ down

down
down
down

fallin’ through a hole in the sky
sky blue sky


down into the depths of  despair
down

in the deep blue sea
blue

as blue can be
can’t you see?

sapphire eyes spark
ling with tears unshed

in the lush blue velvet
of  the night

unseen by any
save for the blue moon

who wept tears
turned blue at the

sound of  her sorrow

for

when she’s feelin’ down
feelin’ blue
only thing to do

is sing the blues


the blues
got hold of  her

down into her very soul

down
down
down

.◊..◊..◊.
blues burning
burning bright
to find
their way out

of  the songbird’s
throat
she’s singin’ the blues
singin’ the blues, baby

to the moon
the blue, blue moon
.◊.

“Kozmic Blues”   Janis Joplin

with a voice so strong
you had to look into her eyes to see
the little girl blue beneath

sorrow and pain hidden deep

…so deep…
only set free
in her songs

“The song ~ I don’t think. Just close my eyes and feel ~ I feel good. It’s really like a fever. It is about a hundred orgasms with someone you love. He lives for that hour on stage. It is full of feelings .. It is a fever, honey …”   Janis Joplin

  1. I love the way the words fall or float across the page, the repetition, the bluesy mood. Stunning work.
