All the Songs Are Sad
“The sadness of the incomplete, the sadness that is often Life, but should never be Art.” – E. M. Forster

nothing but sad poems,
sad songs today.
it seems in spite of the sun
it is raining everywhere
and it is a hard cold rain
flooding the landscape.

    Yes, sad poems everywhere. I wish I could send a cloudburst to Australia, to save some koalas.

    Some days it feels that way. I second the wish for rain in Australia for koalas, trees and farms. 💙

    That’s because we can’t see beyond our immediate reality. Over the next hill, the sun is still there.

    This remind me of a conversation I had with a colleague who couldn’t understand why I was intrigued by the fact that so many people listen/read/watch sad stuff when they are sad.

      I know. My husband and I were going somewhere and all the plague take it songs on the radio were sad. All the news was bad. Yesterday on PU and the Sunday Muse were sad. I was ready to cut my throat by 5 in the afternoon. I was deeply depressed and made more so. I took a long walk just about dark. I took my sword cane for company. I baked a pecan pound cake with orange glaze and cheered myself up. It is a wonder what baking a cake can do for one.

    I see so much sadness around just like you… sometimes we need to teach ourselves to see colors in grey.
