I can not move today.

The sky is heavy

and I am immobilized

by grey.

    Grey with an E
    Will stun you, you see,
    But Gray with an A
    Makes a Pearlescent day.

    Plus, Grey in the Sky
    Will oppress, like to die,
    But Gray in your Hair
    Does enchant, I declare.

  2. prior Says:

    so nice. I seem to use the gray with the “a” – more myself – and find it murky that both are acceptable spellings – ha!

    and I liked your reader’s poem too – how fun

  3. words4jp Says:

    I have experienced grey. I like grey with an E. There is something unique about it.

  4. PrairieChat Says:

    Stupid me, I was thinking I really loved the poem but was confused by who the writer grey might be (by grey?). After reading the comments my haze lifted and I liked the poem even more.

    My favourite in-between πŸ™‚

  7. Best read so far today! Love the imagery

  8. Grey has paralyzed me as of late as well, here’s hoping for yellow, green, pink, red and blue. ❀

    • Just brightened my hair, so I’m vividly blue, purple and fuchsia on the head, and the sky is blue.

        Grey on the head
        Connotes wisdom well-bred.
        Other hues, by Zeus, ya
        Know, tend to confuchsia.

      • Well done, sir!
        (She says, nodding head in acknowledgement of superior skill at rhyming doggerel) πŸ˜‰

        Working on a better portrait of you, Ms. Bird. Need to do you justice…

      • lol I’m honoured with one.

      • Doing my nails in green and blue tomorrow – so if it’s “grey” – all I need to do is look down. πŸ™‚

        I bet your hair looks fab – I’m due for a “bright” highlight retouch myself.

      • Looks pretty much like its usual self (as per assorted promo photos on this site- like the media kit). Generally I brighten it up every 4-5 weeks. It was overdue at 7. πŸ˜‰

      • Shawn, can I ask you a totally off subject question? I’m an infant in WP – only 4 days – and I’m not really sure how, or when, people see my posts — and I’m also not sure what the like button on the blog page is for – near following …. does that mean you like heir blog? If so – I don’t see any stats on that a all.

        Re: Overdue – I’m overdue from top to bottom – this week is beautify week for me … if I can find the motivation lol.

      • Personally, I read you on the WordPress Reader (click the W on the top left and you’ll find it) You can search through all WordPress by entering a keyword. I use the Reader to read blogs tagged as “Poetry.”

        A ‘like’ is generally in reference to the post in question.

        You see how many likes you have on the post, though where depends on the Theme you’re using. Sometimes you can’t see them unless you click “Comments”.

        Hope that helps!

      • Thanks Shawn! It goes. ❀
