Out of the Blue

Falling down into
a dense, tangled mood
darker than the skies
at the midnight hour...

Leaving me caught
in infinite space
by hands on the clock
that grasp me and pull
to where the time goes...

Out of the blue
water washes the stagnant clouds 
drop by clear drop
and the persistent wind
brushes them white again.
All the while, specks of light
appear to shine...

Hues mixing as pastels swirl
with shades much deeper,
diluting them down until
the blues begin to fade away...

Thoughts are suspended
for the moment,
only to float in midair
finally free
and out of the blue.

    I love how you play with the material and the immaterial. As in the "hands of the clock" actually materializing to choke. Or the blue as in the mood condensing in the form of water and then becoming color again in the 4th stanza again. Very enjoyable!#7

    This piece reminds me of a Neil Young song where he sings "when you're out off the blue and into the black". A nice poem - well executed! Peace & Love Matthew Anish

    Hi Kelly. I am reading this at midnight. A trumpet sadly plays and it weaves into your poem in such a melancholic way.I simply love this.

    A most lovely poem, Kelly. It started off shrouded in darkness, but eventually it evolved into a brighter and positive mood. #7+ Regards // paul
