My Side Of The Street

Crystal cloudy lessons of pathos. A dawning awareness in the gloaming. Valiantly, a melancholy soul goes on. Toward an unpredictable future. A frosted flake without a growl. Left to grieve forevermore. The shadows now have walked away. Looking for the sun in a sky of grey. For the Eight words contest. Aug 15, 2017

a sad (yes, melancholy) poem but i think i detect a ray of hope at the end, robert (or at least i hope so). my favorite line is the "frosted flake without a growl." now THAT is poetry!
