Joy Or Gloom? – Connotation for “Blues”
written by: bhargavi
How many blues, how many hues?
The sky’s blues bring on bright & sparkling days
The mountain blue shows majestic mystery, hard to erase
The blue in water is a reminder of cool tranquility & abundance
The blues of flora & fauna show up in delightful incandescence
Then why doesn’t ‘Monday morning blues’ indicate happy optimism & energy?
Why doesn’t ‘feeling blue’ mean euphoric & peaceful synergy?
Beats me… (black & blue)
What connotation must I place on this hue?
NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR:
Blue is far from my favorite colours; I am partial to the yellow-orange-red band. But, when I saw a photograph of a intense blue lake against the backdrop of keen blue mountains, the thought for this ‘poem’ struck me.
