100 Word Challenge for Grown Ups – Week#68 … Grey

November 28, 2012


Look below the grey storm laden clouds. The slate roofs moistened by the recent shower. Blue, green and violet undertones shine as the sun rises over the granite ridge. Last night’s moon hangs in a silver glow. See the jeweled breast of the dove as it sweeps back to the cote. The platinum glint of grandma’s hair as she twists it into a tiny hematite clasp at the nape of her neck. Watching the sleek grey Rolls Royce glide up the drive of York stone mottled by the grey green moss to wait for the bride in her grey silk gown.

    Lovely to see some positive images of grey. I wonder whether this bride is the same one that made such a grand entrance in enterprise gran’s story – it’s fun to think so.

    I like how you display the richness of the grey palette. There are indeed so many greys.

      In the fashion books we hear that Grey is the new beige ! I don’t agree. Thanks for kind comment 🙂

    I agree with Sally-Jane, it is refreshing to see grey in a positive light. I love how many greys you weaved in.
