A Bright Gray Day


Sealless rocks
Under a swollen gray sky
Crying cold tears
That kiss your bright eyes
And warm you like sunshine
Brings a smile to your face

A muddy trail
That ends in rocks unsteady
The slip and slide
To wonderment anew
And novel experience
Brings a sparkle to your eyes

An errant wave
Embraces you like a new lover
Smears your mascara
Its coolness unfelt
In your exhilaration
From vistas now seen
Brings a shimmer to your soul
