Fog

Fog is beautiful.

Soft edges, distorted features,

surfaces soft and moist.

When it lifts, then what?

Harsh light is revealing.

True shapes exposed, corners and angles,

distinguishing features.

Will we face the sun or look away?

  1. Please pardon my ignorance, but where was this stunning pic taken, Janet? Beautiful poetry.

      Thank you Polly. I live about 8km west of down town Toronto but because the lakes curves in we have a great view of the skyline. This was taken at a park just near my house.

    Although I love the sunshine, there’s nothing like a nice foggy day to get the writing juices flowing. Enjoyed this one (as I always do 🙂 )

      Thanks. I was inspired this morning by the amazing fog we had. Now it has all cleared, the sun has come out, and we will break another weather record. Looks like I’ll be on the porch with my laptop “working” this afternoon!

    Interesting commentary. I love the fog, but also love it when it lifts 🙂

      You’re right – we can’t control weather so me might as well enjoy what we get.

  4. Really love the last line, Janet. When the fog lifts, will we face the sun or look away? An interesting question.

      Thank you, and I think it can apply to many situations.

  5. I love the composition of your photo, the contrast in horizontal and vertical shapes, the blue fog. It’s lovely. As always, your accompanying words are thought-provoking and a contrast in soft and sharp edges. Nice.

      Thank you, there is something about fog that is very inspiring.

  6. I’ve always had a crush on fog. It intrigues me in photos and in writing. Love what you did with it here. 🙂

      Thanks, there’s always someithing wonderfully mysterious about fog isn’t there?.
