Sometimes I look back so I can look ahead



Woolly flannel of creeping waves
Sidling slyly in cotton candy fog,
Trailing silky clues to hidden houses
Surfacing suddenly across the bay.

  5. A breathtaking view - and a lovely poem. There's something wonderfully mysterious about fog. I like it when I'm in the Mourne Mountains and the scenery below me keeps appearing and disappearing through the mist as if it's still being created.

    Thank you so much. It's a magical world created by the fog alright. Some extraordinary sights in the Mournes and also I recall the Smoky Mountains in the states when I was driving in and out of fog up the mountains.

  9. I love the photo and the words.

    We had a thick fog yesterday morning and it took a few hours to lift. Today's fog was followed by sunshine and I made sure to enjoy a short walk!

  10. Thank you, GM, at least the fog is different now in Ireland than when we were kids, I still recall the thick sulfur fog in Cork from the coal. Nothing poetic about that unless one was writing of Hades!!

Some of you are having trouble, I've removed captcha and verification so we'll see how that goes. My apologies. Blogger is putting up far too many roadblocks. Thanks for the emails alerting me.
