Blue Daze #NaPoWriMo2020 Day 1

I allowed myself to be thrown off course

by a few, choice, coarse words from you

Now the days have been passing

in a groggy daze

All those irretrievable moments

drifted away

like so many clouds

I open the window

to allow in the brisk spring breeze

and thoughts of you stir and rustle

as papers sent flying from my desk

As I listen, blue jays chirp in sets of three

and a woodpecker taps an echoing pattern on a tree

Nature grabbed me by the scruff of the neck

and shook the blues right out of me

  1. Lovely and nature is always there to rescue us. Concentrate on the good things. People can be ugly, nature doesn’t understand that word.
