Just a Memory (poem)

I look outside, the world’s gone gray,

Not long ago was a summer day…

We’d seek the shade beneath a tree,

But now there’s just that memory…

Captured here for all to share,

To cling to as the world goes bare.

Feeling a bit taciturn today. It is rainy, chilly, and gray outside and I just want to retreat inside myself and stay quiet. I had to thumb through my pictures to make the feeling lift a bit and thus this simple poem was born.
