Feeling Blue

Falling fizz

Feelings flee


fragile me


stiff upper lip

is not what its

cracked up to be

lips can hurt


missing a loved one

is not age related, grey

does not have me back seat

relegated, I need love’s sun too

threw mom’s shawl over

lonely shoulders snuggling back

green memories went a long way

to mend, what dark  reality lacked

blue as shining sky is okay

but what if sky falls down

up turned smile does a flip

all in a split second frown

curling into fetal mode

gathering self to self

console self, take hold of self

water color  blue with white
