Poem - Is it Blue or Grey?

Updated on October 20, 2010

Is it Blue or Grey?

O pale light of day
Where blue has become grey
The sands of guilt spill
Rendering immovable the stolid will
Suffocating what once was free
Demanding a verdict for all eternity
That which cannot be delivered
Instead you cried and shivered
Thinking only of a dream untrue
Replacing what was grey with blue

      Another gem Suburban Poet - I especially liked the 'drawing back' of the reader's mind at the end of the poem to the beginning and the limpid quality you use, like pale sky and water, that you placed in your imagery. You have a special style Suburban Poet. Thanks for inviting me into your words.
