Autumn mist II

We use round words to talk

about mist – it rolls, coils,

boils. This mist

is thin and still,

a silence. We talk about


as if it is an animal –

it creeps and tiptoes,

pads on little paws –

but this mist is a place,

and we live in it.


I’m still exploring mist! For Kim at dVerse. I’m now wondering if I can amalgamate these poems??
