Grey Rules

This week, our friend Michelle Beauchamp (aka Mish) at dVerse Poets poses us the challenge of becoming a color…

Sevenling (no one will) *

No one will ever remember 
that roses were red or that violets,
dancing on the green, were blue.

I am the greyest of fogs. I fade
the sunflower’s flash. I drown daisies.
I guarantee only nightshades remain.

I am the Cosmic Eraser.

*Not familiar with the Sevenling form? You can read all about it HERE.

    Removes the colours from our sight
    Red is grey is yellow white
    But we decide which is right
    And which is an illusion
