March 2012

She creeps in on cats paws
slowly and silently.
Blanketing everything
in mournful frigid weep.
Chilling every fiber
shrouding vision complete.

Settles in like slumber
the air thick damp and cold.
Dreamlike lurking danger
at any turn, movement.
Inching ever sluglike
dreary tears in her wake.

Spectral dissipation
vaporizing in place.
Silent breathless yet gone
leaving only wetness.
An unwanted presence
a departure not grieved.

Wow! Wonderful phrasing, Budd! Very well penned indeed! "Blanketing everything in mournful frigid weep"...stunning!!!!

Oh but the fog can be so romantic! Albeit a danger to drive in and an annoyance to those who "must" venture out in it. It has a mysticism about it.

Ah but such a lovely vision the way you write it. Sort of a prelude to an action thriller of what will be lurking in it.

I can only say "awesome" :)

Love and Light

Your poem evokes a certain sadness, a kind of depression, that comes with the fog. It may be an ancient dread from a time when creatures could attack from out of the fog without being seen. Cool, dreadful, write.

Great visuals...The fog can be quite ominous for sure.
The other morning I was at the beach with my grandson, and the fog was thick on the water is was like a big wall that you couldn't see anything through, but when it broke, it was mesmerizing to watch.

Lovely poetry,
Peace, love and light,

I'll never see fog quite the same way again. Beautiful and graphic. I could feel the fog around me.

Reviewed by Odin Roark 3/24/2012
Beautifully rendered. Graphic, yet with a subtle lexicon. Essence realized. Well done.
Reviewed by Ruan Mills Burke 3/24/2012
Impressive visuals here. I can actually feel the moist unwanted presence and see it creeping "slug-like" over barely visible shapes.
Great penmanship.
