Gray with a Touch of Pink

    It’s an overcast morning and my mood feels very much the same.
    Pensive and reflective.
    Gray with a touch of pink.
    Certain Sunday mornings arrive heavy for no particular reason, full of familia.
    Rolling thunder in the distance, longings emerge with memories that always come with a tear and a smile.
    Gray with a touch of pink.
    I try not to let it be primary, but necessary it is, gray is a color that represents my grief.
    I’ve come to learn to sit with it. To learn from its hues and fades, always emerging a tad bit stronger.
    The gray leads way to blue and the pink that represents Hope always remains.
    Perhaps I’ll always be gray with a touch of pink, but pink is my primary.
