Opening to the novel Shades of Gray.











Shades of Gray


The trees stand dark and somber,

Ominous clouds hide the sun away;

Smoke cloaks the distant farmland,

Where dying soldiers lay.

T’would seem there is no color,

Nature is void of Spring’s display,

On this the solemn battlefield,

There are only shades of gray.

- Jessica James
2000
