at last the sky is gray

>> Tuesday, November 2, 2010




















at last the sky is gray
the blue has gone summering
yet the rain is a world away

there is nothing here
not even blackbirds singing
and i stand ashy
a ghost among dead trees

there must be fireflies
waiting in the gloaming and beyond
shed the tear you have refused me
and my soul is free from November

i see now, know now
how cold stone live without life

at last the sky is gray
the blue has gone summering
yet the rain is a world away



at last the sky is gray

at last

I miss autumn fading into the cold stillness of winter.

Hi Cris,

How sad winter can be.I had some winter experiences and I can say that this season carries with it a certain sadness indeed. Your poem captures the blues but hope (...there must be fireflies waiting in the gloaming and beyond..)as you say it in a beautiful poetic language makes melancholy just the flip side of
hope or joy.

As always, a beautiful poem!

@G-Ma
We need sad sometimes, it's good for the soul. Thanks for dropping by. Hugs :D

@France
I have loved that painting for a long time despite it's rather gloomy atmosphere. Thanks for always checking in. :D
