Subdued

The sky is gray
but not too gray
The rain is steady at times
but not overwhelming

subdued
the perfect word for such a day

I sense the earth
pulling into herself
preparing for the coming winter storms
reabsorbing her vitality
in a state much like the one achieved
just before we fall into a deep sleep

A day to dream
perchance into a fire's light
in some secluded cabin
hidden in the midst of towering trees

alone with all that is
