A gift of grey

Satisfied, full, these sated skies

their grey so whimsical and warm

e’en though with ardor the wind tries

my sallow soul it’s hearth to storm.

* * *

Generous in her briskly breath

an offering of still-born doubt,

reminds me of what is not death

and with strong grace my sadness routs.

* * *

Till now she’s spurned all but love

her bosom warm in shattered sleep,

to wash my brow with rain, above,

and echoes through the cleansing deep.

* * *

And in these moments, damp and dear,

are pressed upon my spirit, warm,

an invitation to mystic, clear,

full brightness of her grey breast, charms.

    1. It is to mystics! If you can believe it, Yakima makes me depressed in the summer. Too much in-your-face happy-clappy sunshine. Nothing opaque. Nothing subtle. Nothing indirect. Nothing of nuance or suggestion. Just push your face in it sunshine. Is that weird or what?!
