Gray Day

Gray day ripples of rain and wind
Gray day thoughts of gray day sins
Languid effort to rally the bones
Restless moments in listless homes

Gray day stupor for wandering minds
Gray day emotions which mesmerize
With darkly sheltered comfort laid bare
A suited message without a care

Gray day desires to forge into its realm
Gray day melancholy manning the helm
Drenching rain a melodious call
Wistful memories to embrace and forestall

Gray day comfort from the white day mess
Gray day relaxation, who would guess
Each passing moment a treasure to hold
No need for the valorous, the athletic, the bold

Gray day peace within a storm
Gray days cease to excite or mourn
Simply the day slips into a calm
A respite, and bandage, a healing, a balm
