20 or more shades of Gray

December 9th, 2017 by Ken

They say it’s a land without shadows – a place of perpetual gray.  Where the oceans and trees, the mountains and seas – merge in a monochrome haze.

But it’s not a land without color, as those who live here will say.  It’s full of spectacular auras, and 20 or more shades of Gray.

There’s the color that comes in the morning, when the sun peaks under the gray.  That turns the mountain tops yellow and puts a pink tint on the bay.

There’s the light that comes in the evening, as the sun dies slowly away.  That illuminates all of the colors, of the 20 or more shades of Gray.

There’s the gray mist that nests at the tree top that hides the green tips of the firs.  And transforms the gray that surrounds them into a green misty gray blur.

Or the black clouds that hit in the winter, when the storms come in off the waves.  Whose twisting cauldron of colors, merge the 20 or more shades of Gray.

There’s the blue grays that softens in daytime, as the sun burns down through the clouds.  Creating a few rays of sunshine  – to nourish the welcoming crowds.

It may be a land without shadows as many who live here will say.  But its truly a place filled with colors and 20 or more shades of Gray.
