I write what I feel…

A Grey Day


A Grey Day

a grey day
with grey rain
steady drizzle
drip, drip
from the tip
of his nose
shoes squelch
in puddles
as he walks
hunched over
legs of lead
another day gone
racked with pain
he crawls under
a plastic-covered
cardboard box
sits on
today’s news
home again

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people! I am back after a break. Thanks for still being here, if you are! Missed you! xxx
