Grayout

“How much farther?”

“I don’t know. Just keep putting one foot in front of the other.”

“Let’s take a break.”

“If we stop, we won’t start again.”

“Is this a whiteout?”

“This is every shade of gray God has invented.”

clear mist wets black skin
boots sink in powdered snowdrift
gray swaddles the land

  1. Love your last line: “gray swaddles the land”

  2. It can be dangerous in that snow storm.

  3. I often feel that greyout is more like reality than whiteout.
