Blue To Grey

Blue sky gives way to softened cloud
Then softly, stealthily, as a shroud
The sky is fully covered, and
Each moment, thickening,
Becomes a blanket of grey mass ~
A dismal scene.
And a certain dimness of the view
Brings change in countenance, and hue.
We see the world a different place ~
Gone the colour, and dim embrace
In it's wake ~
A somberness ensues.

      Alf, so good to see you writing again. Missed you. And a very interesting write about the sky and clouds. Thanks for sharing.

        Thank you my friend. I got rather busy, and at times poems don't come so easily as others. This one did :)

          I know that feeling all too well Alf. Glad you read you again.

          I admire the whole nature of the poem, how it made its way outside your window and cast out into a fully painted picture through just the right amount of detailed words! Good to meet you, by the way. I hope you could give me some feedback on some of my work sometime. All of you make this community great!

            Thank you so much for your visit and comment. Good to meet you also. I like to write poems on what is around me, or in my imagination... or from seeing a painting etc.
