THE FOG


The fog is an illusion—
A master of disguise,
Which hides the tangible
Before our very eyes.

But when the fog has lifted
Everything’s still there,
And the tangible
Only seemed to’ve disappeared.

In the early morning
Or late at night,
The fog descends
Upon various sites.

It gives an air of mystery
That has long prevailed.
Dangerously intriguing
Is the fog’s foggy veil.

    Many of us live in a type of human fog. Blind to what is right before our faces. Human need and suffering.
    Happiness and love. All there but veiled by our duplicity. A thought provoking and intuitive write. (Report) Reply

    you can get lost in the fog, but then, some like to get lost in the fog! Very imaginative play in the fog of a cyber bay.

    Smiling at you,

    Sun in her eyes

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
