Great Escape Days


Taken by

every falling morning.

Grey skies

conceal the blue.


hide in silence,

leaving the sky

full of gull’s cries.

These are

great escape days,

where it’s okay

for the mind

to walk away.

No one wants

to be insane

in summertime,

but on these

rainy days in spring,

there are no rules

as to where

thoughts can go.

Let them roam.

Adventure awaits

somewhere out there

in that slate-grey day.

They’ll return

with tales to tell,

if we first

let them out.



HG – 2022
