Winter Gray

Rain, wind

Sleety cold,

Winter melancholy


Thinly laid rays of light

In shades of gray on gray.

Pigeons hunch

Huddled, round

Against a rooftop slate

While saplings bend

Before the wind

Thin legs barely

Keeping pace.

  1. Thanks. We may as well enjoy them. This cold spell is not going to last forever, in fact I went out into the garden today and removed some of the dry hay that I mulched with this year. Tulips are coming up in droves but didn’t see much else yet.
