Music beats the mud everytime.

Jazz Fest in the mud


Woodstock revisited?

I guess.

Wasn't there, but

I imagine


Wearing boots.

Stomping in the Muddy Waters:

Yes, Chicago to N'orleans..

The beat's in the water..


It reigns on the brain;

Sounds, beats, stomps:


Miles whittled down to inches

Beneath the booted foot,

Hymns of praises and misery,


Beaten down into the ground-

Meshing the sounds.

Back into the Mother

Where her heart beat

Is revitalized.

Her strength renewed

She rises up through the

Bare footed

Child like and ready to swing.

Love the Blues and Jazz...I've been listening to it all my life and never get tired of it...but the mud is a different story.

Don't know much bout the mud or the beat
but the rhythm of your poem in kinda neat
with or without the dirty feet.

YAY. And it's fest time now. Paul Weller being the Modfather, of course. :)

Woodstock was a mighty good time. Wasn't there, but through the films have enjoyed the music. Especially Richie Havens, now gone.
