A Scent Of Gray

Rating: 3.7
The sound of rain is winter on the roof.
It whispers us into fragility.
One tear dropp has the power to shatter glass.
The gray scent of the river fills the room.

One wonders how the moment fits the form.
Perhaps, the answer is too infinite.
An old boat whistle blows the landscape home.
Sky is the limit for such lonesomeness.
It has been awesome to touch souls with you.

A wonderful letter of friendship, bringing the landscape of your home to the recipient in such warm descriptive terms. I loved the first line which opened into a rare and heartfelt exchange of personal care. Thank you.

Oh my, this has so much depth that at first read I can't take it all in. Sandra, it's right what David says, each line carries such weight. The last part really sings out the pain on your separation. This truly resonates. HG: -) xx

Sandra I love your writing! ! ! I agree that content is extremely important to a poem, yet often I look more at style (maybe its the musician in me) ..the reason i loved this one so much is that each line was a new sentence, almost like a chant..sentences often ended in words with 'f' too, i don't know of that was concious or uncious, but it gave it repeating characteristics that played into the chant...your really an excellent writer, not that you need me to tell you that, just thought you should know 10/10

Sandra-your poem is very beautiful. I had vivid imagery in my mind as I read it. I feel as you do, and enjoy communicating with people from other parts of the world. I find that we all more or less think in the same basic way. Wonderful poem. kate
