I hear the peal of church bells

thru the gloom

it's grey grey grey out there. . .

the river is grey, a flock of cormorants - dark grey - fish in the receding tide, a flock of seagulls - pale grey - criss-cross the surface of the river as they fly backwards and forwards having been disturbed by something or other from their restful sojourn on the banks of shingle - ochre grey - at the water's edge, the skyline is grey, the clouds are grey, the rain is like a grey veil between myself and the world- only the trees add colour to the view, shades of deep greens and vivid yellows and the autumnal tinges of golden brown as the leaves dry and crackle and fall to the ground

so many shades of grey, yellow, green! quite beautiful really

It's too dark to know--but it's raining, so I'll assume it's grey?

Ah, and it's fall--so the smells are different, the sounds are different....and in a few hours, the sounds of bells will greet my hears.
