    A Quiet Gray


    Into the blend from a window gaze
    A sparse yet determined green
    Peaks through the brown, rust colored montage of crisp fallen leaves
    Barren bush and accommodating trees
    Enabling and encouraging to look a little further and perhaps reach a little higher
    In the silence there is a sense of urgency and too in this silence a serenity
    Into the blend of hidden blue
    There is a quiet gray




    Unsung Hero


    Search for the Silent one
    The unrecognized, un-noticed one
    Neither hint nor glimpse of boastful gratification
    Sought out adulation
    Just let it be done
    A hero unsung
    A song from the soul
