Forlorn Friday?


Another week comes to an end, and although it isn’t a fuliginous Friday, it could very well be a forlorn one.

Selecting a colour scheme to highlight a somber theme, I considered deep reds and heavy purples, but settled on greys and browns.

The lightest of this sable colour palette and matching poem clip also contains one of my new favourite somber words – lubugrious.

Slightly saddened at the thought that I will soon be focussing on another theme, as dreich and dreary as this might seem, when it comes to creative writing and poetry, somberness continues to be one of my favourite themes.
