dVerse Poets


grey skies
threaten to fall
so heavy with regret,
dark clouds seeded with betrayal
rain stinging, bitterness
soaking through to
the bone

  3. I hear you with the 'grey spell.' January is often that way, I think. We look at things through different glasses.

  7. "dark clouds seeded with betrayal"

    Love that line! Sometimes the best of poems are the ones that are brief and right to the point. Really like this Mary!

  11. It's been so dry around here and we've come to look forward to, and love the rain because of it. I feel like you've insulted a friend. You did very thoroughly and beautifully, however. Just sayin...
