Roadmap

So we’ve come to yet another Throwback Thursday, this one has come around very quickly!
Today’s poem is Roadmap, about the comings and goings of life, and how the smallest decision can have a big impact on the direction of our future.

Happy Thursday everyone! We’ve nearly reached that elusive weekend… Today’s throwback pick is “Grey”, originally posted in March, in homage to today’s dull grey skies. I’m usually a sun-worshipper, so this weather is making me long for the crisp, bright, wintry days ahead! Hope you enjoy the poem πŸ™‚

My life is grey.

As grey as the swollen rainclouds and their curtain of drizzle,

As grey as a pigeon’s wing slicing through the dense, sluggish smog,
