Assessing the Blues

Assessing the Blues

A Poem by Neville Pettitt

Assessing the Blues

I see you and

You are not blue

Most definitely not

Mediterranean

Chows tongue

Or Maltese sky blue

 

I see you

In fact I can see

right through you

I hear you

You don’t sound blue

Most definitely not

True

Berry

Powder

Paint-box

Or duck egg blue

 

On the contrary

I can see

and I can hear you too

For what it's worth

I would not consider

yourself blue

If I was you

I would consider

myself read

that's VERY interesting, VERY caring and thoughtful, and I always think about Your mind, at what and how the thoughts inspire it, how it paints them with Your own style, Your words flow with gentle tune filled with warmth, and how Your last verse HIT! to be shared, understood, felt and yes read, what most whom are in pain want to, thank You my friend for opening Your ears and heart, for laying Your hand unto them and all of us.

That is certainly very kind of you my friend and I thank you for it.... N
love all the perspectives of blue ..the strength of your "observer" is a unique gift of having keen human perceptions ... my Norma is like that ... i can never get away with a lie ;}
putting myself in your "person of blue" makes me squirm under the gaze of "knowing" ... i like this poem a lot... it reminded me briefly of the Smerfs ..and a hint of Dr. Zeus when reading ...but there is a lot going on that is much deeper ...it isnpires my imagination to fill in between the lines...nice read for me sir!

Good morning Neville. Another fine poem from you. Your work is so varied I never know what's coming next. There is a good play on words here which is clever. Blues, can be associated with so many things, music, dogs, flowers, sky, moods, you name it. My favourite blues are sapphire, cobalt and cornflower. I really like the last three lines

If I was you
I would consider
myself read

Those words are what every writer wants to hear but probably not what each individual wants. To be seen through easily, exposing ourselves can be a bit scary.

have a lovely day.

Pleasure is mine.
Just realised there's a lot of blue about.
Blue on blue. Blue murder.
The blues.
Or the classic. What shade of blue should we paint the room. Red, dear.
