Grey Days


Grey days, brolly on the beach,

Seagulls slicing the air,

Soggy sand and sandwiches

And tousled, windswept hair,


Herald the start of winter,

A time to stroll alone

And be at one with nature,

In this, I call my home.


The memories of summer

Are fading with the light

And seem somehow too gaudy

To contemplate at night.


  1. vivid capture of grey days…

  4. Didn’t you just love it when the gray fog rolled in while you were walking alone on the beach? Nature wrapped cold gray arms around you and said, “Listen to the surf,the gulls,and all I have prepared for you. You are my special child.
    Share this world with others.”
    And you did. Thank you!
