Overcast

Wind barreling around the houses,

Bending and shaking the bare trees

 

Dark gray skies neverending

Hang shadowy, like a curtain

 

Grass caught between green and yellow

Wet and shortened, stand firm

 

Me in my study, staring at the window

As the sky whitens, maintaining its mantle

 

Another overcast day, such is Winter

With its cloudy shroud upon the air
