Dawn drifts over the ridge
Into the deep grayness of fog
Reluctantly the sun
Relinquishes the day
As the light moves
From shadow to shade
Stripping color from prism’d palette
Revealing only gray scale
In the murky afternoon
The last frail lamp
And night returns to night.
Succumbing to the weather
Misery has its own forecast.
You pretty much summed up how I’m feeling about the weather today.
Misery definitely has its own forecast – and doesn’t always follow the weather forecast either.
…Oh..oh ..you can tell it right…we have a crazy right here back in the Philippines… And it scares me a bit everytime it rains here for i lived quite near to Dam.. Aww… Electric powers are on & off since last night…so i must be probably using my phone in writing this and reading yours…smiles…
I love the ending here. I’m a huge fan of strong endings with poetry. Very nicely done!
Thanks, Gretchen – I like strong endings too – so happy you enjoyed it! K
today was terrible weather…they said it was going to be in the 60s….it might have got to 40 and it was a cold drizzle all day…and thick fog…what the heck…i want some sunshine! smiles…
Sorry – that was here yesterday so must have sent it to you – but today was warm and sunny! Smiling back at ya!
You have described our weather today, grey and depressing ~ Yesterday we had bright sunshine in the cold winter, not bad ~
Hope tomorrow is full of sunshine for you! k
You really captured how the weather affects our mood…which is why, now that we’re retired, we head to the California desert. You’ve responded to the prompt with perfection, Katherine.
Thanks, Victoria – it was a fun prompt – hope the sun continues to shine on you! K
oh i feel this…we had lousy weather for weeks over here…dark and grey and rain – it’s not easy to not succumb to the weather and try to keep up a joyful mood…so much easier in summer, isn’t it..
we have had few gray days but yesterday was a dark foggy dreary day – happily today was warmer and sunny. Hope the sun shines on you this weekend. K
This feels very moody….
Yesterday was a very dark and foggy day – happily today has been warmer and sunny- A much happier mood! K
