May 23, 2014 Grey/Poets United/ The Color Green







Grey
Today is grey
Overcast
Rainy
A day without sunshine
A day in May
A day of grey
The grey of a dove
Calling for morning
The grey of a mouse
As he sits in the shadows
Of the house
Many birds are grey
Sometimes hard to tell apart
Grey is the color of my
True love’s eyes
Often grey is the shadow
Of brightly colored things
A song can be grey
A mood can be grey
A memory can be grey
Grey holds everything
Only holds it a little lighter

Poets United Midweek Motif ~ The Color Green


Color Green
Mix blue and yellow
Opposite of red on the wheel
Bright to dull/light to dark
Often the master
Of the landscape
Trees, grass, ponds
And shadows
Green can sing solo
Or harmonize
With any other color
Feels lush
Symbol of money
Abundance or envy

Lovely poem Annell. It is grey here today too. Your words describe perfectly how I feel about it. Grey can be a beautiful soft color....one does not have to think of it as dreary....

This is lovely. It is grey here today too - a restful grey, a grey of introspection.

I like how you enter each color, and I'm ready to read about all the rest as if reading the chakra of the outdoors.

It is time that people started waking up to what is around them.
