grey rainy day

It’s raining outside
Raining grey
Grey skies
Grey pavement
Grey grounds
I don’t like it today
I feel alone
Too cold to pray
Too old to play
I haven’t an umbrella
Not a raincoat to wear
It rains me grey
This grey rainy day

A little context: it indeed is raining today and I feel grey but that’s not the only reason I wrote this poem. A blogger friend suggested I try his 13 line format (called Gladius Poeticus)  in a poem. I followed it today. Though I have no particular format for my poems, I found trying to write in a specific form pleasantly challenging. Thanks for reading 🙂

    1. Thank you Alice. I used to love rain when I lived in AZ, it was a nice change and there is something mysteriously beautiful about rain in the desert and mountains. We don’t have that here … But at least I got a poem out of it!
