Fog’s Fascination
By Mary T. Hoffman

Autumn-ravaged tree boughs
allow glimpses of fog-shrouded lake,
transforming early morning’s mundane
into mysterious, serene, peacefulness.

But soon sun’s insistence
will slowly end fog’s
short-lived reign,
imposing its own beauty
aglow in the eastern sky.

Below silhouettes of evergreens,
the fog retreats before imposing sun
till only wisps of mistiness remain
scurrying along placid water’s surface.

Ethereal loveliness – nature’s transformation
rewarding those who care to see,
drawn by fog’s fascination.
