    after rain~
    the glorious arch
    stretched across the
    expanse of sky
    in its magnificent array
    but the rainbow
    could not display
    the color
    of my day

    after rain~
    I awoke, heavy-laden,
    in love. . .
    thick and moist
    upon my tongue,
    remnants of
    midnight fire slowly
    found their way into my
    now

    ~and brought with them
    the color grey;

    the clouds bore witness

    overcast ~my
    heart, my mood,
    my attitude
    much too heavy
    to weigh

    after rain~
    neither rainbow,
    nor did the sun
    cast a single ray;
    my cheeks stained with
    tears for what my words
    could not convey

    "I always miss you,
    even before you go away"

    after rain~
    the sign of promise
    from God Himself,
    failed to aptly say

    ~ how much I
    love our times of love
    . . .and the color, grey

    I feel

    the clear
    trails of
    tears
    making
    moist
    crystal
    like
    streams
    down
    brown
    cheeks
    as
    her lover
    leaves
    her
    embrace

    she knows
    he cannot
    stay

    I feel
    the
    pain
    from
    two hearts
    still beating
    as one
    withdrawing
    while they
    yet cling to
    one another

    bodies
    still
    warm

    from
    their
    internal
    sun

    I feel
    his aura
    and
    multi
    colors
    glow
    around
    him
    as he
    slowly
    moves
    away

    taking
    every
    breath
    she breathes
    leaving
    behind
    the color
    grey



    this is a definite favorite of mine, Ms. A.... you speak of love the way you must live it .... I'm in awe forever. The man is blessed.

    ooooooooooooooh Alyce!

    When you drop it like that it makes me think of an old
    black and white movie a love story like literature
    captivating , radiating and then the ebb and flow.
    How I do know this feeling. And my admiration for
    your work does grow!:toast:

    sitting on a beach somewhere, alone but not lonely, watching the waves roll in from the sea, somewhere around the time when the sun meets the horizon...gives me much the same feeling as the love-coloured shade of grey...

    Admiring your work

    and how you could evoke feeling and draw a picture with a word that I've never really thought about for more than a sec...till now
