Nature poem set in city

So much gray.
Light gray cement
of sidewalks;
Darker gray rivers
of pavement
form the streets.

Shining dark gray glass
rising toward the skies
on buildings paying
tribute
to the cities
that birthed them.

Gray smog
hanging in the air.
Grey tree trunks
marching ever in
straight lines.

Even the pigeons
wear gray.

But what here?
A cheerful dab
of sunshine
bobs its head
above the ground.

Until it, too
succumbs
and fades to whispers
disappearing
on the wind.

Dandelion.
