Grey Skies

The clouds gather, like warriors in steel,
Dark and dreary? All geared for battle!

I stop, to stare and wonder
Behold the dark and gloomy
The laden grey skies-
Of impending thunders,
Of lightnings, and powerful rains.
And wonder yet again,
The beauty the dull can bring-
Ne’er a brighter green,
Ne’er a more startling white,
Against the backdrop of grey
It is another one of those,
Another my kind of day!

P.S. It is a part of the ‘weird me’, that I love the grey skies, and every time it makes me happy- thinking of the rains it is going to bring. And that feeling I have that it is takes dull grey to make the world come alive, as it enhances in its own unique way every beautiful feature, every bright color, which the sun in all its glory, suffusing the world golden, cannot accomplish. Isn’t it on a dull grey day that you feel like lounging by your window and just staring beyond?

    U know how i like the sky? pitch black. and the poems lovely of course! 🙂


  2. Guria says:

    Ahh, I like that myself too, with sprinkling of those scattered, bright dots… an idea for my next piece of poetry! Thanks!! =)


  3. Raj says:

    the dots make it beautiful. i like it dark. without the dots. probably a couple of clouds covering it all. a dull moon as if in hibernation. that, is my perfect night. 🙂


  4. Just love being on a beach with clouds looming. If it were raining nothing like it. Stormy sea, thundering waves, pouring rain and dark clouds!! Heaven!!

    Nice verses. Really liked them.

    Shrikant, oh, I love the stormy seas. But I am not thinking of the skies then!

    Raj, i enjoy gazing at a clear night sky with the stars, on a new moon night.

    These verses, however, I wrote at my desk, in lab, in between bench work while staring out of the window. The sun is having an off-day today and we're waiting for a heavy downpour.


  6. Raj says:

    so you are in college. and you mentioned a lab, so am guessing something related to science. so should i safely assume you are an electrical engineer?


  7. Guria says:

    Hahaha, no I am not in college anymore… I am back in school. I am doing a PhD in Medicine. Hence, lab as in a research lab. It may not seem like but I am a scientist. Sigh!


  8. Raj says:

    Dr. Guria, that is quite impressive. and for the scientist thingy, i have nothing but respect for u. took me forever to earn the title of *scientist* in my workplace 😀

    This is beautiful!

    The rain clouds are always welcomed by everyone.

    But yesterday it was thundering so much here, and people were out there on the beach for ganesh visarjan in this with wild rain, its risky near sea. At that moment I realised, Its beautiful when you are dry and safe!

    But yea, rain is fun 🙂 My fav season.

    Grey, just like people, just like emotions, always there, never right here. Brings out the best and the worst in everything I tell you.


  12. Wow.. That was a great rendition..


  13. Guria says:

    Makes me feel even better to see that you think so!


  14. Guria says:

    I love the rains even when it is scary. But then I am a pluviophile.


  15. Guria says:

    I can only see beauty in the grey for some reason (in all things)… though black is my favorite, and white generally overrated in my opinion (though opposite in people)
