Sometimes I feel blue

Purple-yellow iris (Kay Stewart photography). Poem by you know who.

Purple-Yellow Iris

Sometimes I feel all blue

Sad      Sorry      Down

Like the Blues

A Rhapsody in Blue



When the Blues

Begin to play in me,

It happens –


Blue bursts into purple

Leaping into joy

And a burst of sun-burst yellow

Comes crashing through the blues

I feel all clean

All wet    All  up

Like a hymn

An ode to purple-yellow joy

  1. I agree with Sparks In Shadow— “Blue bursts into purple” is a familiar feeling expressed in a surprising way. (I really love being surprised by writing.)

    I love the idea of spring as an allegory for shifting moods— it feels really fresh and lush!
