The grey scarf

found warmth,
in whispers-
unspoken on,
those cold winter days.
we found a piece of our-
sunshine in unsaid letters,
colours or lack of it never,
bothered our being as a grey scarf*-
unexpressed balance emoted enough.

Poetry form :- Etheree ( 1/2/3/4/5/6/7/8/9/10 syllables)

P.S :- Grey scarf* :- I had read that the colour “grey”- represents balance, so used the same in my poem to convey , “grey scarf “as unexpressed balance.

Acknowledgements :- Thank you Colleen. M. Chesebro for hosting Tanka Tuesday Challenge and thank you Eugi for providing the theme prompt, “The Gray Scarf”. Thank you Grace for hosting OLN at dVerse. Thank you all for stopping by and reading.
