Melancholia Cures

Vintage Words


Feed a bird your breakfast's crust
paint a picture of a favorite kid
sing an old standard song
pray to the god of your choice.


Then, smile in the mirror
read a favorite poet's offering
repot an overdue for new dirt plant
watch the world from a window
as you sip the last a cup of tea.


Then, sing some more until
the blues pale into light greens,

brilliant yellows, and blossom

into the uncompromising reds

called joy.

And as the hues change
The woes of blues away
Sing what you can say
While your blues all fade

A poetic remedy for beating the blues. Imaginative, well expressed, with feelings and emotions making an impact. Well done!

Thank you, my friend. A lot of blues around, especially recently with the storm hitting the Eastern U.S. hard over the last few days. Fires and wind damage has taken out homes, 52 dead and counting. My solutions are for the mild blues, heartbrokeness is something else - LOL & Hugsss~~~~Lady A
