Sudden Fog - Shadows in the Fog

Plötzlicher Nebel / Sudden Fog / Repentina niebla  (Haiku)

Plötzlich dichter Nebel
Häuser verschwimmen in Schatten
Nur Lichter von ferne

A sudden dense fog
And houses blurred in shadows
Only lights in the distance 

Densa niebla repentina
Casas en sombras borrosas
Sólo luces en la distancia

Schatten im Nebel / Shadows in the Fog / Sombras en la niebla  (Haiku)

Schatten im Nebel
Vergehende Gestalten
Grau wie die Häuser

Shadows in the fog
Only some passing figures
Gray as the buildings 

Sombras en la niebla
Sólo figuras que pasan
Gris como los edificios 

Note: When I was walking in the streets to do some shopping yesterday evening there was a dense fog which inspired me to write these Haiku

    I'm reading some of your older poems, Gert. Amazing stuff. This one is so atmospheric. I'm so glad you went shopping in the fog to get the inspiration for this gem : )

    Two very beautiful haiku, Gert. Living on a peninsula, we have a lot of fog but it is usually at sunrise when the heat raises steam over the water. Excellent writing! Love, Carolyn
