Winter Gray

Winter Frost Winter Frost

Rain, wind

Sleety cold,

Winter melancholy2094293419_f79562c6a8_z

Wraps

Thinly laid rays of light

In shades of gray on gray.

Pigeons hunch

Huddled, round

Against a rooftop slate

While saplings bend

Before the wind

Thin legs barely

Keeping pace.

(Marie Hunter Atwood –1999)
