Grey falls – twice

Grey falls
Sheets of rain
Driving wind
Wisps of fog
Leaves blow
Fire turned to mud
Do dawn
Days of gray

Grey falls
Ending of year
Driving wind
Coming of change
Leaves blow
Place for new growth
Do dawn
Dark Night of the Soul


I’ve had this thing rattling around in my head since the other day. I’m not totally sure if it is one or two poems. What do you think?

  1. I like it as one. The first stanza sets the tone for the second, builds up to it. “Do dawn / Dark Night Of The Soul” – a dramatic declaration of acceptance and drive to grow and thrive. Wonderful!
