any bright thought will do

anything other than this
insipid state i’m in

something with more than a
bit of color to cheer me

this sky where there is no
blue has too much white light

there is no shadow for
there is no yellow sun

there is no brightness for
the sun is above clouds

the white noise machine is
working to relax me

but it has dulled the sounds
into a submission

even this poem has
too much white space in it

This poem was written to today’s prompt at Poetic Asides to use a line from one of my poems as a title.
