Insipid

set in monochrome

dull overcast canvas drifts

the breeze plays a melancholic tune

paints a gloomy grey picture!

        You are a pro at writing micro poetry, so this should be a piece of cake for you Megha. You can do justice to any form of poetry 👍

    Lovely poem, and your picture goes so well with it. They remind me of the recent thunderstorms we have experienced here, and the farmers are grateful for them.
