A Blanket Of Gray
A blanket of gray covers the sky,
With lighter patches, few and far between.
Gloomy, overcast, from horizon, to horizon.
A north wind blows steadily all day,
Trees are almost bare, yet,
The sense is of incredible beauty.
Long gone is summer, Autumn has arrived,
Red and golden leaves, statuesque silhouettes,
Of dormant trees are all around.
Live everyday, enjoy every breath,
For every season, is different for a reason.
For everyday is a gift, be thankful, always.
