Frayed Grey Days

As icy rain falls and clouds collide

Visibility disappears in the frozen fog

Temperatures, now negative on the Farmer’s log….

Depression’s chill seeps deep inside

******************************

Deep blanketed coverings warm my body well

Darjeeling steeped to the third degree

A smile, priceless, when once so free

Nothing warms this mad winter spell

********************************

With bleak eyed, blank-walled stare

my IQ is suspended as I “rain on my own parade.”

Zombie like, a death walk through the shadow glade

and my armor of cheer, stripped bare.

Trapped Behind the Veil (Haiku stanzas)

Trapped in fog-filled days

Rain saturates flesh and bone

Lassitude kills will

********************

Brain soggy and dull

I float in this dreamland lull

Life behind the veil

******************

Gray landscaped canvas

Deepest dark green grass gives hope

Bright-hued skies…..someday

For those affected by the weather sunny skies will come again.

Haiku: three line stanza in a 5-7-5 syllabic structure.  The theme is generally related to nature.
