Just some thoughts...

Every day, as I write Poetiquejustis, I pray it will be a blessing to someone.
Today, I hope it is you.

Harmony- Flat Out

Always aim at complete harmony of thought and word and deed 
Mahatma Gandhi

When you play the blues, sometimes the C chord becomes a bit more interesting
if you let the 7th note go flat

You have built a good case for that chord all the way up the scale
A good strong C   a resounding E and a smack 'em down G
And no matter how you turn it around-
It is  still the same chord

It is sounding strong, and it is sounding very clear
But what makes the listener remember is if you throw in a B flat  at the end

It is like taking a bow and stepping away

When we try to make our point with people, 
 we need to learn how to let that last note go flat
Leave a little room for the imagination
and a lot of room 
for harmony
That is my note about having the last word
and that's poetiquejustis
                          Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.
                                                                       Proverbs 16:24
