The position of gray

~

After so many years

it grays me to see

how often we enter into

an agreement of unkindness,

each day a choice of persuasion,

where shadows of unmet desires

play against the walls

of our routines

sung by the low hum

of tuneless notes.

~

no apologies

aching hearts

~

we are both waiting

to be

apart

  1. Just wanted to say how much I’ve been enjoying reading through your blog. Love the pared-back simplicity of the language (“it grays me to see” ) and the resonance of its music. Have been trying to do something similar with prose — and know it’s much harder than it seems! Thanks for the inspiration!

    • Thank you Aileen….as I age I’m finding my life is simplifying rapidly in things and such, carried for a long time. With this need to travel lightly, it is leaving words as spare but trustworthy companions.
      I’m new to WordPress but welcome! I look forward to more engagement :~)

    • Thank you for this kindness. It’s true. Seeing this experience encapsulated in so few words nearly upended me but there is a stronger desire to trust the heart knows when to till the soil.
