#367: Grey Skies, Grey Seas

Sometimes folk who summer here decide to winter over.
That's when they meet the Grey Lady.
Grey skies and sullen seas.

You have to look for color in the off-season:
Orange Lifesavers

On an empty ferry.
Even my own mother doesn't visit in the winter.

But the hens lay colorful eggs.
The little one in the middle is a 'first egg of the season'
Always a celebrated egg.

And a greenhouse grin for
a chinese cabbage harvest.
 Spring rolls for supper!
Those who winter over learn to 
appreciate God's gift of color
 wherever they find it.
