by Diana Mary Sharpton

Alone but not lonely, colors this soul
A complicated two-sided dirt road...

Mud pits wear on a passionate touch...
An emotional ruler... as such

Yet happiness still resides...
As self simplifies...

It's Wednesday afternoon and I am reaching for a slow deeply passionate groove that compliments the theme of my poem titled "Colors".

 This brilliant singer-songwriter with a god given gift to sing and vocal range that few people can claim; yes, we are talking about none other than Adele. She is from Tottenham, Greater London, England and "Easy on Me"(2) is the featured song which was written by Adkins/Greg Kurstin. It is the lead single on her newly released album titled “30”.

Adele release this single on October 15, 2021. It is considered a Pop genre and it is highly recommend. It is all just perfect! The video, directed by Xavier Dolan, brings an authentic feel to being an everyday woman going through relationship issues. It was uploaded on YOUTUBE, Oct 14, 2021 by Adele.

I have listed the lyrics below for your reading pleasure.

"Easy on Me"(3)

There ain’t no gold
In this river
That I’ve been washing my hands in forever
I know there is hope
In these waters
But I can’t bring myself to swim 
When I am drowning 
In this silence baby let me in
Go easy on me baby
I was still a child
Didn’t get the chance to 
Feel the world around me
I had no time to choose
What I chose to do
So go easy on me
There ain’t no room 
For things to change
When we are both so deeply 
Stuck in our ways
You can’t deny how hard I have tried
I changed who I was
To put you both first
But now I give up 
I had good intentions
And the highest hopes
But I know right now
It probably doesn’t even show

Stairway in Fog - Oahu b (c) DianaMarySharpton

I know what I have given you...

I do not know what you have received.”

― Antonio Porchiai

Morning Fog

by Diana Mary Sharpton

A lazy autumn morning fog, laden in sizable droplets sustain,
and hover a foot above an inner city’s rustic terrain.
it envelops a wary traveler treading gingerly past a rocky laden ditch,
as distant vibrations echo direction; a piano bar strums reaching a vibrant pitch.

He ponders; eyes closed, intakes a deeply earthen breath,
listening, engulfed in genuine joy, not for logic, life, or death,
it’s the taste of harmonious sound, consumed in each beat,
frozen within steam; churning into a clamorous molten heap.

 It’s the heart that’s not understood; the mind that’s not spoken,
It’s the secret you hate; as his soul bleeds from acts seized as a token.

Can you really preach choice that’s not yours to say?
Or even determine another’s path into a most suitable way?
Are you a Deity that sees through the wall of internal lies?
Or is it merely you egotistical slant filled with honey coated flies?
As an ice-cold droplet lands on his shut eye lid; in a sudden chilly slash,
and needles jab his body; moments of joy fade in an instant flash.
He is neither thinking, feeling or making choices on the journey ahead,
for the music continues resounding as echoes in his head.

Synchronously, the composition vanishes; a flight continues as he quietly walks on,
He’s not probing for resonance or elation conveyed in her special song.
No, the truth is paved with each step he possessed,
Along a path worn by shoes leading to her place, he must confess!

"Van Morrison - Vanlose Stairway"

Send me your picture
Send me your pillow
Send it through Krishna
On the Vanlose stairway
Send me your Bible
(Send me) Send me your guitar (Send me)
I want to reach you
On the Vanlose stairway (On the Vanlose stairway)
On the Vanlose stairway (On the Vanlose stairway)
And your stairway
Reaches up to the moon
And it comes right back
It comes right back to you
Send me some loving, child
(Send me) Send me some kissing, yeah
(Send me) You know what I'm missing
On the Vanlose stairway (Stairway)
On the Vanlose stairway
"Right there, hold it now, hold it there"
And your stairway
Reaches up to the moon
And it comes right back
And it comes right back to you
Send me your Bible, child
(Send) Ohw, send me your guitar, yeah
