~ Autumn Fog ~



Tonight, an autumn fog rolled in,
Murking, moist and thick as sin.
It covered the world in a dripping mist,
Gave birth to shadows with a slow, wet kiss.
Scattering light to a thousand round drops,
Refracting it back, through clotted cloud tops.
It carried cold with it; the bone-deep damp,
Leeched out the warmth with a soft, soggy clamp.

The full moon attempted enlightenment,
But the fog foiled even that fractious event.
Drifting deep, in vaporous sleep, it rested,
Dense, refusing to ever be bested,
The fog slumbered on and I thought about dawn,
And the early-bird drivers who soon would be tested.

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.

      Thank you, maryrose. Sometimes I use the pictures to draw out the muse, other times the muse just writes and then I search for the perfect picture. This was one of the latter. 🙂

  2. A fabulous poem and photo. I really enjoyed it.
