CHILD OF THE FOG

The fog of San Francisco is like a child you hold dear. It brought you many smiles and ofttimes a lonely tear. When you don't see it anymore, comlete sunlight you abhor. Fog is so much like your warm lover's sweetest kiss. And when gone, oh, how my, how sorely it is missed. Once baptized by the fog, you belong to it forever. Nothing can replace it~ no, not now, not ever!          10-8-2020          7:15pm PST

Hi again Linda, I humbly appreciate this comment. Having been baptized with fog from the Pacific Ocean, I belong to it forever. Child of the Pacific Ocean, Panagiota with love xx

Oh, my dear poetess! Your poem is beautiful in expression and emotion and imagery. I love fog, but I admire it even more now. Your poem is exquisite, Pangie. These poetic lines took my breath away; “The fog of San Fransisco is like a child you hold dear.” And, “Once baptized by the fog, you belong to it forever.” - Simply stunning! Your poem’s a gem and a fav!! Warmest wishes.. ~Susan

Susan, a gem and a FAV! golly, what can I say! But I will be forthright! I honestly agree with you.)) I noticed this Senryu was poo-pooed by most. The few of you who did respond, caught the lines perfectly. This is one of my Fav poems. I just looked back at it. It shines with not just imagery, but persona to the max! Hugs, Pangiexx

Many see fog as a negative but love the way you have turned it into a positive, feels like a soft warm protective blanket, Emilia : ) x

Sorry you never got to see it. But, Tom, at least you were here. Intoxicating, it is! It rolls in somewhere after sunset. I lived in the Marina, which is two blocks from SF Bay. It's so thick, the streets get wet! Thanks for the comment. Hugs, Pangie xx
