it’s been a while

L. B. Mek


Blue Sky

thy erudite sublime 

it’s, been a while


I made time

to look up, and smile


they’ve, been talking of war

and life’s 

becoming even more of a chore


how comforting, then

to know

even if it slips, my mind

you’re still 

looking over me, so

        In midst of chaos
        It brought peace
        A sudden calm
        The wind that carried me in midst of meadows
        To feel the nature from the chaotic mess

        Very beautiful write dear Mek

        • L. B. Mek

          as is your wonderful poetic reply, dear poet
          'In midst of chaos' - 'A sudden calm'
          what a sumptuous wording of gifted peace

          That blue sky is always there for us Mek.


          • L. B. Mek

            indeed Andy, why we must
            cherish it
            for, if those nuclear toys
            start getting thrown about
            it won't be there for long...

          • Neville

            best to do just that my friend .. to make sure its still there but hey .. I know you are not one to bury your head in the proverbial sand ... still its a comfort, isn't it nevertheless ..

            top notch sir Mek ......... Neville

            • L. B. Mek

              'comfort', indeed!
              thank you: trust you
              to identify my key word for this write, Hyung
              I was aiming to replicate
              your subtle nudge, style
              and offer a little reminder
              at Nature's soothing gifts..
              they're free, so why not - partake
              and find our thread
              to those illusive, avenues of solace
              in our lives...

            • Fay Slimm.

              Thank you dear Mek for sharing so aptly the comfort of moments spent looking at nature's free gifts - -and indeed so needed right now

              • L. B. Mek

                a nature poem that gets your resounding approval
                I'll memorise these words then
                as this scribble, must be one of my better efforts..
                thank you! dear Fay

                beautiful, "Did you see the frightened ones? Did you hear the falling bombs?" the blue sky can be a solemn sacrifice in war time. You reminded me of the same allusion from Pink Floyd's The Wall. Beautifully tightly written!

                • L. B. Mek

                  thank you, dear poet
                  and when I checked out 'the wall'
                  these lyrics, resonated with me most:
                  'And some gather together in bands
                  The bleeding hearts and the artists
                  Make their stand

                  And when they've given you their all
                  Some stagger and fall after all it's not easy
                  Banging your heart against some mad buggers wall'

                  • jark

                    The Wall has a powerful presence that has been foundational to my interpretation of an artist. The cyclical nature of the album, and the intersectional pressures a person faces when they create over and over. I made a series of pen and ink portraits in 2020 to the story of The Wall I called, "The Death of an Artist". Until I kick the can though I'll make my stand. thank you, dear poet

                    • L. B. Mek

                      thank you, dear poet

                    • myself and me

                      The blue sky that soothing the pain, healing the wound and carrying the hope, sometime might covered by clouds. We know if we keep our head up, we will see it for sure. Beautiful writting.

                      • L. B. Mek

                        thank you, so glad my humble words
                        invited such hopeful thoughts from you
                        that's all I dared to wish for
                        when inking this scribble
