Writer’s Log: 1883 Fog

I found a bunch of poems and songs I’d written decades ago. I’ll post these here over a few days/weeks.

Fog

Where the sea meets the sand
 humidity finds
its invisible status
 has left it behind.

A chilling night air
 bumps head to head
with a moist ocean breeze
 and between them they shed
a mist.

A rolling white specter
 so think it’s been dubbed
with an untouchable texture
 an ethereal rub.

Fog is its title
 confusion its wake,
leaving all standing idle
 while the sun works to make
a fist…

To punch through this blanket
 to tear it to shreds,
but remorse moves to thank it
 for fog’s presence led…

Us to ponder our lives
 and their continual rush
to question our pace
 to instill a hush…

As fog’s dearest treasure
 is silence and calm,
a noiseless deep pleasure
 which soothes as a balm
our souls.

  1. “Poetry” as a tag or in the headline brings out lots of extra hits, a few new likes and friend. Personally I don;t comment on poetry.
    Except for
    very contrived
    fake
    Modernism
    or –
    Purposefully
    abstract
    obfuscation
    being
    the
    Point and
    Process
    College kids
    Post Grads
    Lit Degrees
    being cute
    All
    that shit?

    Pffffffffffffffffft!

    Fog is one thing we can all agree on.
