Hi everyone,



There must be a poem in this somewhere. Any takers?

  1. If You Can Make A Blue

    If you can make a blue,
    deeper than the skies,
    and put it in a bowl
    wider than your house.
    If you can make a blue,
    truer than your eyes,
    sunk betwee between the stones,
    grayer than a mouse,
    I will come and swim
    (this is no surprise)
    and watch the morning sun
    rising in your eyes.

    • And of course you are my taker, Jane. I love “…watch morning sun/rising in your eyes.” Beautifully done. Thank you. XO

  2. Rain, rain go away
    David wants outside to play!
    Lake is calling, deck is too
    Staring out just makes him blue!

  3. As I struggle to find comfort, I’m reminded of a line in Jack Gilbert’s poem, “A Brief for the Defense:” We must have the stubbornness to accept our gladness in the ruthless furnace of this world. To make injustice the only measure of our attention is to praise the Devil.

      • I see I misunderstood your invitation for a poem. I was responding to the tragic killing of children in Uvalde, Texas.

      • That’s what I thought you might be doing, Gloria. Certainly no harm done there. Thank you again. I hope you’ll join us again.
