On an ordinary cloudy day,

I sat by the sea for

an hour and contemplated

the concert of colors playing

before me—grays and blue grays,

gunmetals, silvers, nickels, stainless steels, charcoals,

sterlings, platinums, pewters, and slates—

merging and melding, tumbling and scattering,

shifting and intensifying into deeper and lighter shades

of gray. Changing with the wind, light play,

reflections of water, and

rain clouds. So many shades,

too many to name, bursting with variance,

rich with depth, vibrant in contrast.

I’ll never think of gray as plain or dull,

nor will I consider its cast upon a day

as ordinary.
