sitting in our dining room, at my computer desk.
I turn my head to the left of me and gaze out the window.
what do I see ?
First I see a gray sky
then the large green pine tree that graces our side yard, perhaps for a hundred years.
then I see the telephone wires that criss-cross the houses....and think of all the stories that have traveled on those wires over the years.
off in the distance I see more slate colored sky laced with boney looking bare trees.
and I think;
this world is beautiful even when it's gray.
