~ Night Fog ~

Everything plays Hide and Seek,
When the clouds come down,
And dance on the ground.
The muted hush makes one
Reluctant to speak,
As the night-time world
Plays Lost and Found.

Crystalline drops bunched in the night air,
Coating the night’s kiss,
In a silvery mist.
Damp blanket of moisture;
Light dew, barely there,
Wrapping the darkness
In wet, velvet bliss.

Swirling vapors — breath of dreams,
Holds the silence close
In translucent repose.
Shifting shadows make nothing
As it seems,
And morning’s sun
Will mark the night’s fog as a ghost.

About dragonkatet

Regarding the blog name, Dragon’s Dreams ~ The name comes from my love-affairs with both Dragons and Dreams (capital Ds). It’s another extension of who I am, a facet for expression; a place and way to reach other like-minded, creative individuals. I post poetry and images that fascinate or move me, because that’s my favorite way to view the world. I post about things important to me and the world in which we live, try to champion extra important political, societal and environmental issues, etc. Sometimes I wax philosophical, because it’s also a place where I always seem to learn about myself, too, by interacting with some of the brightest minds, souls and hearts out there. It’s all about ‘connection(s)’ and I don’t mean “net-working” with people for personal gain, but rather, the expansion of the 4 L’s: Light, Love, Laughter, Learning.

    You captured the mood of a foggy night so well. You gave it a very mysterious feel–it’s just beautiful.

    i like the idea of silence being in repose ……… nice lilt and very pleasant rhyme-associations. definitely one to bring a smile. the scene described lifts even though a “fog” is so often considered glum. so your presentation on that translates the turn of mood.

    (sorry if sound tad sumpin or udder — just came from something that required more exact speech! 🙂 )

      Thanks, E. I knew what you meant, so no worries. I liked the rhyme scheme, too – it seemed not too sing-songish, which is a good thing, in my book. 🙂

  3. I sometimes love these foggy nights … there is a hidden beauty in them, the kind of beauty you created with your words here!

      🙂 Thank you, Blaga. There is definitely beauty in the fog – I love how it coats everything and makes it sparkle – ! Like you! 😀 Thanks for stopping by.

  4. Lovely words and the rhyme is like soothing background music.The imagery–clouds coming down to dance,wet,velvet bliss–that feels so good! Loved the entire poem with its foggy, misty beauty and calm yet ethereal feel.
