Day of gray
by Todd Huey
Damped mood, mellow, less
Dramatic- calm as the trees
on a gray motionless morning.
The clouds themselves seem lazy
no place to go, no one to see.
Legs up, sandals off, knees to chest.
my outgoingness now introverted. Deep
peaceful breaths fill my lungs.
My brain is not craving the many
half read books.
Daydreaming is a part of who
I am on this day of gray as the
unique clouds are to the sky.
Staring off into nothing
The meditation of a daydream
The mind stops leaving something deep
inside to take over.
The true meditation
Natural in its form
No special place you need to be
At an instant everything goes quiet and still
The picture in my head is as the framed
art hanging on the wall.
Seeing my surroundings only with
Mind blank as the pages of my journal
Sitting motionless, mime-like
An instinctual need to put my arms
around myself to embrace myself.
Comfort in a day of gray as my
hands rest on my shoulders and
mind opens to nothing and everything all
