Summer's Promise- Lost in the Mist

Elusive within a veil of fog and mist, summer begins in Maine. Join me for a closer look at its hidden beauty...

Heavy and Dark- A Foggy Morning

Broken into shards of mysterious silvery light,
Dawn is only a shade away from the lost night.
Droplets cling onto the leaves,
Shushed shadows whisper through the woodland trees.

A Promise Unfulfilled

A foggy summer day,
Warm and gray, the sky vapor-thick.
Hidden within the forest,
The promise of morning
Lingers long-
In the silence of the mist.

Fog and Feelings

Beauty softens in transparent lace,
Woven threads of time, tangible...
Suspended in place.
A morning veil of translucent grace...

An Invitation and Closing Credits

Why not shake that fog of indecision and do something fun, creative, and worth-while? What a great summer pastime... share your writing talents. Join our Wikinut family of writers...click here to find out how.

Good morning LOVERME-hope you are well and feeling better!...Yes it is true photos- (just like a person's written word) are copyrighted...I do not feel poetry needs a picture - words can paint pictures in our mind...but in this internet world- it is very nice...I love doing both- combining them... the pictures become poetry and the poetry a picture...LOL-and LOVERME- I am so glad that in this modern times people are reading poetry everyday thanks to sites like our Wikinut!--gosh I would do a song and dance-( and believe me that would not be pretty-LOL)-if it keeps poetry a living and breathing art...:0) -thanks LOVERME my friend...:0)

Hello again-glad to hear your feeling better-:0)-I deleted your comment poetry as you have asked me to, I hope you have it to keep -I do not like deleting comment poetry unless the author asks- because I just might be deleting a master piece and then how would history look at me-;0)...I really liked your comment and poetry LOVERME and hope to see you back at the key-board soon take good care my friend!

Good morning Siva...it is such fun-my picture of "tangible beauty" is of what we call, usually- "dew webs"..they appear nestled here and there clinging to the grass in the very early morning and look much like a spiderweb but are made of dew...or in this case fog...thanks Siva :0)

Ma’am DP
no matter how many times
I visit you… each time it's fresh anew … each experience is so wonderful …and how I love to read….
grand -mom all the works you glue
lovely poetry in slow motion… speedy snaps too…I am quite sure some day… someone will shower praise upon you… a Nobel I can't vouch …may…but your name shall shine...beyond parting clouds ..
in Maine …Spain …. in winter sunshine or rain …
Ma'am your works shall in the hearts of mankind remain… just as an honored one… all the same….

LOVERME-Someone did shower praise upon me, and LOVERME that's you- with your lovely creative poetry comment- thank you for that my kind friend...:0)-and someday my poetry will be a bit of me- for my family to know that bit of history and time that touched their Grandmother's world...

this is an inherent part of life
history is attached to all story
but the only glory
is in the wisdom we know
to share what we do
and
as time rolls by
more shall evolve
moms, pops and grandmas grandpas et all
who will remember who
heaven knows..

all is but a simple story
of friendship
unknown, unattached
and so we all move along
to another veil thatched
In the far reaching roundals of universe
they all call it eternity
at best
at worse...
