What is this item

that's dragging me down

and making the world

a horror of bleakness

and the day helplessly



Where did the brightness

exit and who has taken

the key to open the mood

to more natural landscapes

blessed with eternities

of welcome warm sunshine

and smiles?


When will the perpetually

rejeuvenating  joy arrive

to push out the down draft

and elevate the mind

as if on a pulley

tugging methodically

toward happiness?
