Superior's Split Rock Bay Fog

Fog rolled in over
my knees

Sending a cool tingling right up
my arms

Refreshing my thoughts

A smile
aware of its origin

Leapt from my soul through
upturned lips

Sharing joy with deep blue bells
yawning about me

Tall lungwort

Breathing the same life giving

Moist fog

The same

Life giving

    Jimbo, I am glad you dropped-by my poems, because you grabbed my attention, diverting it over to your newer poems that I am enjoying. Aside from the most important aspect which is that I know the Great Lakes and their various terrain and ambiance, is how you didn't employ punctuation with this poem, and yet it reads very well .... I wish more people who don't use punctuation, would think about it a bit more(just my opinion).
