Winter Canvas

Grey is the rain that falls
onto the grass
through cracked concrete

Grey are the buildings
the glass
and the street
the people clutching umbrellas

Grey coats the world -
cold as rock -
except the rain-slick green at my feet
and the sky patched blue
above your house

A J Ponder  

Another startlingly busy week - it seems like every moment is flying before the next - so best wishes to everyone for the week - and why not check in on the final posts for Poetry month at an Aotearoa Affair?

 A.J. Ponder's work is also available through Rona Gallery, Amazon, and good Wellington bookstores


  1. I really enjoyed this, Alicia--at one level a great picture of our midwinter weather, but lifting to something more at the end with the "blue//above your house." Great stuff.:)

  2. Hi Alicia,
    This poem totally expresses my feelings toward the weather this last past week! Grey...and I think that is what gets to us isn't it...the colour of grey...and the little flashes of colour that keep us going! Thank you Have a bright blue weekend!
