Shades Of Gray - Poem by Melvina Germain

Starlit colors
were that of bright blues,
with flickers of crystallite silver hues.
As time progressed,
life’s radiance faded.
Shades of gray, danced over the
brilliance of the universal aura, creating
a systemic embolism, penetrating deep
within it’s core.
Lush greens, fertile lands,
lost forever more.

    Superior imagework employed here, Melvina...a spectrum of vividity & grande depiction...and perhaps a lilt of sadness for the grey that that somehow cannot see the kaleidoscopic view in front of it...Solid work, young lady...

    A lament for a landscape that is slowing passing away before the poet's eyes. A wonderful command of colors displayed in this nostalgic piece. Beautiful, Melvina.
