Treasure Island

Rose Wilder

(May 16,1996 / Atlanta, Georgia)

Fog


The fog shrouds everything with its hazy veil.
It broods low over the worried waves-
So low that sea and sky are the same.
The trees tremble in the tiny breath of breeze,
Their cold gray veils of mist undisturbed.
At last the returning sun pierces the shroud and drives away the fog;
The tattered shreds of mist are left to melt.

    The depth of awareness in this poem indicates your actual presence in this experience. I love how the lack of rhyme lends a certain brooding heaviness to the lines, indicative of the surrounding fog and constant waves. I hope to see more work like this. Keep honest and write away!

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
