dVerse Poets – Prosery

“In the tender gray, I swim undisturbed.”by Celia Dropkin, from Sullivan County who was born on December 5, 1887, in Russia.



Life seems to pass by quickly and in the tender gray, I swim undisturbed. Everything around me is bright and colorful when I glimpse what my life used to be in fleeting colors. A child’s birthday party, a wedding reception, the birth of my first grandchild, graduation ceremonies, parties and holiday gatherings, are all lovely visions of life’s rainbow. Sitting by myself in the quiet, it is easy to remain in dull, colorless inactivity. Depression may set in temporarily as I wait for another visit or bright hued connection to the world outside my own.

  1. Cheryl, what I notice most about the person in your story is her expectancy and her receptivity. She is throwing intention out there. I feel sure beautiful colors are headed her way ❤
