With extremely limited resources this month, I considered omitting the colour page altogether. But after reviewing the featured poem, Monet’s Song, the slate coloured cloud I witnessed while viewing a spectacular sunset forged it’s way through to become this month’s colour choice.
Although considered a grim colour by some, the variety of shades the colour grey comes in and the neutral tones it offers makes it one of my all-time favorites.
As for the word used to describe April’s shade of grey, I wavered between the colour of lead to describe pencils used for drawing, but settled on slate, as in a slate where thoughts could be etched into.
