calm reflection 

Jacaranda tree of purple flowerah, I remember!
annual May gray, June gloom
a calm reflection
new lavender blossoms rest
against faded, silver skies

gray and gloom

loom about all day
though inevitably
the gray fades,
the gloom burns away,
encapsulated by the sun
canary rays mix with charcoal haze
saying hello and goodbye
until the gray is only a memory
