Barefoot blues

I have really old shoes
And times are not so good
I have walked too long
I only have a blues song

I don’t know much
I know how to close my eyes
I don’t have any clues
I only sing a barefoot blues

So sit beside me
Tell me your name
We’ll get richer as we talk
I’ve learned that in my walk

Yes sit beside me
Take your shoes off
Feel the moving ground
With music we are bound

No shoes
No clues
Just some moves
And a barefoot blues

blues, song

Born in spring, my name means Spring. I love poetry in all its forms.

The word “poetry” derives from the Latin feminine noun poetria, meaning not “poetry” but “poetess”.

    The title alone conjures wonderful imagery Vesna, and I love the idea of those last few lines “No shoes, No clues, Just some moves and a barefoot blues”

  • I am so glad you liked this one Richard, it is something different for me, I enjoyed playing with it:)
