I Love The Blues

I love the blues

It whispers to my soul

Sweet melancholy music

To sway me all night long

Or a screaming guitar

To rock me all night

Sway me sweet or

Rock me hard or

Somewhere in between

Sweet, sweet blues

Fly me to the Moon

Where I wander and dream

Among the stars

My Other Place

My Kingdom of Fancies and Fiction

Of enchantment and darkness

Where reality does not exist

I am free to be, just be

The Moon of those skies

Cannot sink or rise

Nothing moves the sky

A crack between the smallest

Hours when no clock chimes

Shall cross the moments and

Go silently from time

Things called day and night

And dreams called far and near

Pause – forevermore

Nothing turns the hour here

Never can the wind lift

Moveless small tattered clouds

Star dust glitter upon my hair

Wandering here in my loneliness

Wind and shadow – I see no more

Sweet blues whispers hurrying

Down the air

Once on a time

No sky’s golden – no sky’s black

No man’s kiss or word

Will bring love back

Falling away, shall leave me ever

Things close about me – beautifully

Ain’t nothing like the Blues

Reality and I have quarrelled. This is where I go so he can't find me, my Other Place. Here I can spin my Fancies and Fiction, as I wander among the Stars and listen as they whisper their secret to the moon. My name is Annie, I am lovely and lonely and I belong deeply to myself. I love cats, listening to the blues, the mountains more than the beach, being lazy, writing my fancies and fiction and I also love to crochet. That's me and this is my Other Place.
