Not my favorite color, but sadly, much of our garden fades to taupe in winter.

This is the dried out husky color of dead grasses.

It is the background, the default; Nature’s neutral.

It cloaks the marshes and carpets the forest floor.

We distract ourselves in December with pine green, berry red, cone brown.

But Taupe is patiently waiting. 

It’s death-mask tranquility will still greet us

in January, February, March.

Beaten by rain, blown by wind, bleached by sun, rotted by time;

Taupe will not  surrender

Until it is overpowered with fresh spring green growth.
