A Scent Of Gray Poem by Sandra Fowler

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.
The distance is a mood that never fades.
Our imagery is lowering with the day.
It rains in my world, Friend, the same as yours.

A sensory delight - where the beauty in amongst the sadness and the solitude shines through... picture perfect imagery that combines the elements and the emotions with a delicacy that sets the mood to this piece that doesn't fade...and a scent of grey that lingers...j xx

I love the last stanza, particularly the lines, ' It has been awesome to touch souls with yours, ' and 'It rains in my world, Friend, the same as yours.' Warmest regards, William

'It rains in my world, Friend, the same as yours. How wonderfully put - a Scent of Gray giving off a feeling of softness - a wrapping for love
