Sounds of gray

 I hear the low hum of gray 
 As it moves  across  the sky
Forming  rain clouds up high
As rumbling chants gather to darken the day

Then a charcoal hue of thunder breaks the silence
Rattling all other colors in its presence
The sounds  of  tambourines  play as raindrops fall
As drumbeats of platinum echo off the wall

Cymbals   crash  as silver raindrops increase
A melody that is sure  to shatter the peace
As trombones join this symphony of grays
 While ash gray sounds of thunder play "taps" upon the day
