Fog… a free-form poem…

It comes, with the stately grace of an ocean liner, to cocoon the world in mystery…

Sending before it tendrils and feelers of mist and vapor…

It comes with the measured tread of a glacier, to smother the world in solitude…

Passing over ridges like a tidal wave in slow-motion…

It comes, as unstoppable as time itself, to cover the world in grayness…

Squeezing through gaps and flooding the lowlands…

Mountains rise above it, their peaks become islands in a great, restless sea…

But below, in the fog, we are the fish that swim in the ocean’s depths…

I love picking a topic and just sitting in front of the keyboard and seeing what happens… oh, yeah…

You will laugh at my antics... That is my solemn promise to you... Or your money back... Stop on by...

    On cat’s paws – Bwahaha! I can smell a soul that lives/lived by the ocean. That mystery that swallows the world. Ha! You know when I was hauling over dimensional loads and we could not get a permit (holiday or routing problem), I used to travel at night in the fog so the cops couldn’t see the load. Most effective and never got caught.
