Blue Moods

It's summer. The shore is busy.
Bright colors are everywhere
Blue prevails.

Alone she sits, with naked thoughts,
could never get the peace of mind she sought
no matter how long she meditates.

Her garden, once with flowers' blooms,
now crowds of weeds.

It's summer. The shore is busy.
Bright colors are everywhere
Blue prevails.

Nothing personal. Just exploring through new themes

The loneliness came screaming through,
you should have walked with someone you could speak to.
I hope you are OK.
Mario was just talking about each having their own place to walk with someone.
As with the piece I wrote "A Short Walk" I am sorry that your beach was so Blue.
Lovely write and great to see you here again..
Always remember we are walking the same pathway, and are there for each other..
Go well young lady,
Yours as always Ian ..xx

Words can build a nation

Always appreciate your kindness.
I am Ok... Nothing personal as I said, just missed everything abt. Poetry

that this resonates with anyone who has ever felt "blue" because of some life altering change.
A death, a relationship gone bad, losing a job, etc. You realize that life goes on around you, but you just can't seem to find the interest in joining in until you have grieved over the loss. Natural thing. You did a fine job in making that felt. ~ Geezer.

a really good poem, Rula, you nailed it.
(2 subtle issues on cadence. Perhaps drop the "that" just use "get the peace of mind she sought" , hits the cadence better. Also maybe "the shore IS busy" ....its a bit awkward to say "shore's busy" which could also sound like "sure's busy" as well. and it keeps that part of the line iamabic (da DAH da DAH )

Nice to see how amazing your poetry is evolving. Despite the blues you have made an uplifting poem, because sharing the blues is what blues is about, be it in music or poetry.
