Dreary Day

Dreary day
Dreary day

I love a dreary day,
the muted trees
sketched in charcoal
against the blank canvas sky
Nearer our window
than those hoppy blue skies.
Today’s sky is soft,
watered-down white,
shrink wrapped around our country house
like a boat ready for winter storage.

It’s like Mother Nature
stayed in bed today
rocking gently
to the ticking drip off the eves
Her breath is slight
her rhythm slow,
Her arms are folded together
under fresh washed sheets…
dozing.

I think I’ll linger as well
listening to the sleeping
breath of my Love,
letting lazy thoughts
wander through my
blank canvas mind
and sketching a rough poem

in a little black notebook.
