A Blues Poem

By Patrick Tefft

The Blues are more than a Mississippi crossroad,
More than Robert John son, Charlie Patton, Sonny Boy One and Two.
More than the Delta fields that gave it birth.
More than Chicago with it's winds that gave it flight.
More than the children it spawned -
B. B., Muddy, the Wolf, Willie, Chester and John lee.
More than its followers - Stevie, Eric and Jimi. . . and you and me. . .
When we first encounter The Blues it can be a moving
And even a life-defining experience.
For some it may be a cry in the night,
For others the finding or loss of that one true love
Or for some, the reality of eternal emptiness.
Whatever brings us to The Blues,
Once we arrive there we understand
Without words.
It's the heartbeat of life.
It's the song of joy,
It's the cry of pain,
It's the unmistakable touch of love.
It's the naked truth that cleans the soul
and sets your heart free.

I guess if you write enough songs, read enough books, stop
and really listen to what people have to say and live life, you
become a poet. I suppose I'm guilty, and willing to do the
time for those charges. More specifically, I am a blues guitarist/
singer/songwriter and sometimes bassist. I am currently
putting together a solo act, having been tired of the band
scene after all these years. Solo electric guitar, heavy foot
stomp and hopefully some tunes/lyrics that can reach someone
and share the Blues experience. For truly, The Blues are
the universal language through which the people of the world
can gather and experience the power of the Blues...
