A Blue-Gray Sky by Wayne Scheer

A Blue-Gray Sky

The blue-gray summer sky
hints at a bright, sunny day
and a heavy rain,
like a child
laughing and crying
one moment to the next,
or a friend,
who played third base
on our Sunday softball team,
now, a blink of the eye,
and he relies on a cane
to walk upright.

Wayne Scheer has been nominated for four Pushcart Prizes and a Best of the Net. He's published numerous stories, poems and essays in print and online, including Revealing Moments a collection of flash stories. His short story, “Zen and the Art of House Painting” has been made into a short film.
