Gray is the proper color for sky...

Not that dirty gray-brown of warmer but smoggy climes:

A soft, misty gray that soothes the eye and calms the soul.

The mist descends to pour over the hills,

Drifting through the firs,

Wrapping the world in a fuzzy gray comforter.

Gray is the perfect setting, enhancing the earth’s green

From somber firs to bright maples

And the myriad shades of green in my water-fat garden

Where deer amble around the fence, pretending nonchalance

Searching for the magic portal

That will grant them access to the tempting delicacies within.
