Déjà Vu Blues
I’ve answered this email question before
while reading this Quadrille
I’m sure of it
The memory uncanny
The feeling eerie
I think I need
a tad bit of something
to spice things up
Something brand new
to squelch these déjà vu blues
Mish is running the bar at dVerse Poets Pub today and is calling for spicy Quadrilles. As I read another poet’s Quadrille, while multi-tasking and answering a work email, I had the strangest sensation of déjà vu. So while it would have been easy to write a food-related Quadrille about chili or Texas Skillet Dinner or steak on the Traeger, I decided to go a different direction.
Love the title and I know that feeling so well. Sometimes it feels like I’m writing the same thing, or using the same words, over and over. BTW, I really like the picture of you at the top of this page–lovely.
Thanks. I thought it was time the blog had a little make-over.
Fantastic and I’m sure it would be the first blues song ever to have the word “quadrille” in it. 🙂
I suppose there is a first for everything!
Now THIS should be the name of a blues song, played with guitar and harmonica to mouth…I’ve got the deja vu blues…..LOVING IT!
I love the blues. Now if I could just get one of my favorite blues artists to record it.
Deja vu….the monotony of life will do it. Yes, finding that spice will shake it up!
When nothing is new and all you have is deja vu…Nice poem.
Ha! I am with you, I was sure we did this. I checked back and dVerse did “Pepper” not long ago and another of my prompts did spice. I don’t know how much wider my repertoire of spice-inspired poems will stretch. Fun read!
Hmm, for me deja vu has always been so brief and elusive that I savor those rare moments.
Depends on the moment, I suppose. 😉
deja vu blues… the monotony can do that!
Yes, monotony is the problem.
I like the idea of spicing things up to get rid of the repetitiveness of deja vu.
I visualize Taj Mahal singing this blues song; what a fun way for you to rock the prompt.
Well done, this even reads like a blues tune. 🙂
I think I need to find someone to write the music to go with it. 😉
Sometimes we just need that spice.
Deja Vu Blues…someone’s gotta write that toon…funny I was listening to Blind Melon’s Change as I read this.
I’m not sure I know that song. I’ll have to check it out. But I could totally hear George Thorogood singing a song called Deja Vu Blues.
I agree. Great song title.
You rock, Paul. Blind Melon is my favorite.
Sing it, baby! Nice job!
