Gray Evolution | Poem


 
Gray Evolution 

Sometimes colors fall like liquid clay 
into the nature of the day 
an ethereal moment 
all existence is truth 
sharply invading consciousness 
as thought in feeling 
deeply now beyond reach 
it evades detection 
stopping flow and reason 

no one can know it fully 
nor can they say I know it, 
held it in my hand or heart

but I was touched by it 
and for an instant turned gray 
and knew gray 
I fell into the day 
then fell away
