Hazel Durham


Shades Of Grey


She see's the light of his eyes shining with desire,
Lit from the inner recesses of his magnificent mind,
Like a burning fire,
He hold's hands with the world without any conflict or controversy,
His single minded presence brings calmness to any company,
Drawing inspiration from the smallest detail,
With the elegance of his nature he lure's love,
To a quiet place with his appealing face,
Strong, angular with cornflower blue eyes,
The wind like his driving force as he whispers endearments,
That rustles the autumn leaves along familiar paths.
A sense of belonging he creates within her lonely life,
Painting pictures of reality with alluring shades of grey,
He explains to her 'Its not just about beautiful colours,
Its about seeing vibrancy in paler shades, '
He is able to make friends with envious foes,
Love is his purpose for living,
He protects her from her scary past,
Comforting her with his soul that lightens every dark day,
Shades of grey blending in his world that never frays,
Just his inner truth of relishing life's fruit's.

    What a character you have created here in this poem. The He in this poem is quite a mild and calm character. Reminds me of Siddharta when you wrote He hold's hands with the world without any conflict or controversy, (Report) Reply

    I look into a mirror and fail to see him...
    The man elevated in stature of life here is one whom we men chase and the world of the duo projected here has to emerge sooner or later Hazel. A wonderful poem that deserves a 10 out of 10 from my side too. (Report) Reply

    There is certainly is truth that the paler shades get lost in the brashness of life. I don't know why but I feel great sadness underlies the loveliness of this poem and I feel forlorn or maybe its just the greyness of the day. Another beautiful and poignant write. 10/10 BB : O) (Report) Reply
