branches stripped of life

dawn’s brush fades to grey

    I take this fade to grey to be like Frost’s gold that fades, “So dawn goes down to day.” In other words, all the beauty of dawn… and the moment of introspection as we absorb the colors… fades, and we are left to face the dull day.

    Wonderful use of colors! There is so much of symbolism in that fading to grey.

    I love reading a combination of words that can make your shoulders drop and your jaw soften. Thanks for this.
