Sunrise in Grey was first performed by Icosa on the 1st of May at St Botolph-without-Bishopsgate, London.
Detail: Sunset by William Turner
Rose, lilac and marigold
shade the clouds
with the light of the dying sun.
Like a giant lake the sky is reflected
in a mass of rippling grey coats
with black umbrella lilies.
Iris, violet and lavender
paint the raincoats
with the first of summer frocks.
(Leo Geyer, 2014)
