Fog – 4 October 2006

Here’s something I wrote this morning as I was looking at the fog over the lake. I chose my watercolor painting “Misty Morning” to illustrate this Blog.

Fog’s Fascination
By Mary T. Hoffman
(Written early morning, 4 October 2006)

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.

"Joyful Curmudgeon"
An oxymoron?
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful.  At the same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true peace and compassion.
