Shades

Grey is bright as silver

A startlingly beautiful

Argent hue

That is revered by many

Grey is dark

As a piece of charcoal

Distinct from the brighter colors

Near total darkness

 

Grey is the face

Of Selene

Bringing cold light

To the darkness of the evening

Grey is the hand

Of Zeus Cloudgatherer

Hiding the chariot of Helios

Bringing darkness to the day

 

Grey is when a light

Appears in the shadow

Darkness shifting

To purity

Grey is when shadow

Obscures the light

Purity returning

To darkness
