I awoke this 3rd day of the new ywar
to a dense fog outside my door
it looked like a lavender maze
 enticing me to go and explore

knowing how quickly fog dissapates
I went right out in my PJ's and robe

Amazed when after some brief steps I was lost, laughing
I turned back towards my apt,when I got to the door I
thought mine, what a shock to see it was #12, I'm #7

I started back slowly towards my door counting railings,
when inside,I smiled at how easily we are lost I had to
give it some thought

I sat in my recliner drinking coffee thinking
of all the emotions that had been stirred
it reminded me of how much I count on
Creator to keep me in the right direction

The dense fog lasted several hours,most unusual
here,it's never so thick and long lasting, I
have to admit I enjoyed it...

Can't believe it's 1-3-10 already!
Best Wishes to all!

Thank you for the good wishes, Eileen..may 2010 be good to you!

As for the fog, it is fascinating...I've seen Smiley face covers on car foglights, which I liked...but yes, fog can be treacherous and dangerous...we have a lot now. You in PJs out in the fog, on the other hand...hmmm. :)

Your poem brings to mind how our leaders have cast a fog like cloud over our Nation and we walk through it without question of the consequences or do we?

Great poem Eileen.
Happy New Year and a blessed Healthy one for you.

What a nice walk! Coming back from door 12 to door 5 has not been so foggy because the humor born between the two doors cleared the way for you. GBQ

This poem serves as a beacon in the fog.

Must have been English fog! That can last, for a fortnight or more.
Fog is atmospheric, especially as it hovers just above ones head.
But for now we are stuck in everlasting snow, something we never get.

I can visualise this so well.

But Tiggs, if you'd looked on the net, you could have got a pair of bino/glasses so that you can see through such fog and darkness, i should know, my nieces have them.. lol.

I'll go play misty for you:) xx

I'm in the fog most of the time but usually my internal radar keeps me from crashing into things which by no means implies I know which direction I am heading. Patrick

:)) I love this, Eileen! You sound so like me - just running with the elation and spontaneity of a child without really considering the practicalities. Shame it wasn't Narnia you stumbled into after all, but your homing instincts won out in the end! Fog is bittersweet - it can be womby and liberating - or intensely isolating and scary. What impacts me here is the sense of danger that lurks even just outside your own front door and the threatening vulnerability that creates within us. Time for a stiff drink, I reckon! Hope you're mending and that your sight is not distressing you. Here's to renewed vision just as soon as! :)) xx

Fog can be quite unnerving. It's as though you have lost your vision and cannot see one foot in front of you. Sometimes my job requires me to come home pretty late at night, and I run into fog all the time. I never panic, I just try to watch the lines in the road to guide me toward safety and a time when the fog will lift. The fog always lifts, and leaves us with a feeling of accomplishment that we made it through the fog...

Much peace, love, and light, and stay out of harms way,

Ok, aside from the very deep and profound, you choose to go out in your PJ's and then we all walk around nearly naked, a daring proposition, but in real life, most others barely see us the way we really are anyway. Daring, and willing to explore though, makes us curious human beings, and leads to much adventure.
I feel sort of kin, for in a fog I'm in.Hugs! Jasmin Horst

Eileen, what a marvelous gift to challenge our perceptions, fog -- it is almost as if we are asleep with full alert faculties being deceived in a luxurious cotton cloud world -- I am glad you decided to share this emotional experience, it is invigorating -- peace and love be always with you -- Jon Michael

"...I sat in my recliner drinking coffee thinking..." no recliner for me but a rocking chair and never mind the dense fog as long as the cooler holds Coors and that blasted orange cat gets the heck from my sights (Ma didn't tell you of my "good" disposition on early mornings! he?)

Fog can be most enlightening - especially when we wander about in it.

And a Happy 1-3-10 to you Lady Eileen. You keep my eyes dignified because I read your marvelous writings.

Sounds as though your new year is already rich with thought, Eileen. Fog is a strong metaphor for challenges we face. Hugs,

Dear Eileen, I was once lost in the fog first time I went to Germany. It is an experience. Very nicely written. Thank you for sharing. Love Emile

We can all be humbled pretty quickly, and easily.
I am one who sleeps better when everyone is home safe, all tucked in.
Glad to hear that's you.

What a thoughtful and insightful poem. A delight. So lost but never alone as long as you believe. Love it. Liz

we had fog like that over Christmas and with freezing temperatures it frosted every surface it touched...the entire landscape was painted with white frosty crystals...gorgeous! Fog has always had the eerie lost in space sensation for me...better walking than driving and a good time to check in with creator for directions :)
Reviewed by jude forese
life is indeed a fog we are guided through by gut instinct, the cosmic authority and the knowledge there is clarity beyond its grasp ...

Now THAT is some thick fog, Eileen. It's a wonder you didn't trip and break something. Careful now.
