Crippling Gray

lay me down to heal

till this crippling gray stills –

a regard for spring

sparks first tweet from window sills

no more will this sting endure

Flower of the Day FOTD

A leaf for Cee’s Flower of the Day Challenge. I think it’s called Dusty Miller. Very velvety to the touch and seem to strive this time of year.

Yeah! I looked it up, I can’t believe I remembered the name😊!!

Moon – Haibun

Lately, there has been nothing to the days but gray. It looks like a brewing storm. But it would turn out to be a calm slate of gray that just lingers. This look is carried through to the nights.

My crystal ball can’t say how clear the night sky will be in the mountains. But I am really looking forward to getting out of the city just the same.

The plan is to leave at eight in the morning, so naturally we left at eleven. This is always the case. Especially when this is not going to be a day trip.

Pedestrians are walking over the Tappan Zee bridge walkway. This is a new addition. What an amazing view that must be. That, is going on my to do list.

Ongoing road works along the route is finally over. This makes for a more pleasant ride. Along the way, we pull over every now and then for photos of turning leaves.

In the mountains I look forward to gazing at a night sky that offers some rewards.
