Opaque Morning

She rides low and ghostly 
close to the ground
giving the streetlamps
that dot the neighborhood
opaque ethereal halos

Where the skyline touches
her shrouded cover
she mystically wears
a peached-tinged glow
that’s pleasingly mellow

She obscures familiar
landmarks with her
misty morning dew
laying a damp blanket
on a Spring morning

She is the sunrise fog
and today I welcome
her beautiful unearthly
picturesque view.
Grateful eyes viewing

    I agree with all you describe Deb, the fog has an ethereal shroud that wraps everything in its path. Love your wonderful descriptions in this great poem. Luv, Eliz

    Hauntingly serene and silent the earthly cloak appeared. As the angel walked among the breeze, she forgot what she had feared. The emptiness that filled the night. No longer lived in morning's light.
