Adaptation or Propaganda?

NovPAD Day 7 – An Adaptation Poem

If you were a cloud
would you take offence at grey?
Call it boring?
Ask for pinstripes
or one bright sock?

No...
it’s only because you're not a cloud
that the grey 
falls around you like
quiet confusion
and your predisposition for skipping
seems muffled and trite.

So sit back awhile,
hold the grey between your knees
feel its rhythm
and let yourself sway.

In its blanket strength
there’s a companionship of droplets.

Grey is a flood
let it take you away

  1. “that the grey
    falls around you like
    quiet confusion” – on its own, it is like a quiet confusion, that feels true. Cause grey itself needs something to define it, it’s such an undefined thing otherwise. I love grey tinged with blue, that storm grey.

    “In its blanket strength
    there’s a companionship of droplets.” – lovely couplet.
