Entrancing Blues

Entrancing Blues

Mellowed tones fill the room
as an artist croons her Blues
A broken cadence of rhythmic magic
that seeps into the soul

It’s the blues, Man
It’s New Orleans
Home-grown 
Spirit filled
Chasing
the blues
kinda 
Blues

Soft lights cast silent shadows 
with an atmospheric hush
Each note slipping through
and joining with your pulse

It’s the blues, Mam
It’s New Orleans
Home-grown 
Spirit filled
Chasing
the blues
kinda 
Blues

Loss of clarity over and done
Stifled by sweet pleasure
Rhythm and soothing verse
are Louisiana’s treasures

It’s the Blues, friends
It’s New Orleans
Home-grown 
Spirit filled
Chasing
the blues
kinda 
Blues
