The Enemy

In a field of planted pines newly thinned
Neat trees in parallel rows lined up straight
Much more visibility once again
Cleaned and gleaned open for all to see fate

Entered in the open gate to escape
But the enemy can see every move
A blessing disguised fog came like a drape
Covering emotions he can make use of  

Behind a tree crouched upon the damp ground
Coated in fog, heart pounding, holding a scream
Waiting for the enemy to hear sounds
Of my breathing_or thoughts as they stream

Only the thick fog protects as he turns
Leaves through the open gate death is now spurned

    Wow, you have outdone yourself with this write my friend! The fog inspired theme is definitely something that I really enjoy! Of course we share a passion for the fog and this poem sure shows this passion with you...and its symbolism! I really enjoyed reading this amazing piece this evening! Great Work!!
