The Blues with Moods

A Poem by Josie E. Cook M. A.

Fall in the air...


The Blues with Moods


Today, the sky is filled with blues

In every shade,

And dotted with fluffy white clouds

They appear to be floating in a sea

Of this amazing blueness,

I love that feeling as I gaze at them

By a fountain with spirited angels

Dancing in the middle of it,

They are entwined

And their wings seem to reach for

The skies above me,

With pretty fall leaves littering the slate-colored

Path near me,

And some of these colorful varying shapes

have reached the water in the

Park pond--floating and tumbling

As the geese swim with the ducks,

On a bench, by the edge of a clearing,

A man and a woman

Are cuddled together

Almost as one,

His hand in her long hair

And her legs wrapped around his waist,

With her fingers inside his coat pockets,

I'm a bit jealous of their passion for each


Because my love life is in that halted stage

Where an emptiness takes over

And my heart feels heavy.

Something needs to happen soon to make

This state an evaporating emotion, so it won't

Linger forever.

The cute couple is gone,

They vanished like the fog

When the sun arrives,

And it fades into the trees to hide

Until another cold morning comes forth. --J. E. Cook ©2017
