Morning Mist



In dampened blur of violet dawn as angels’ weep did touch upon a mourner’s shoulders mist enshroud - to soften edges gauzy haze that hug around these painful days and mellow memories endowed in sacred stillness of time gone. In silent water droplets clear is beauty precious every sphere collecting on silvery spires midst leaf and scented lavender reminding me of when we were devoted in our love’s desires - each flower holds a lost love tear.

Oh, wonderful poetry, truly a classic to emulate the poetry of the old masters of our lakes here in the UK.
