A heavy fog grasps each plant Its tenacles wrap around Laden with moisture it leaves damp Creeps and crawls without a sound A golden sun peeks through gray clouds Exposes thick silver fog Rises slowly higher in sky Silent the rain tree frog Which presence will win the scene The fog rising from the creek? Condensation from the cool rain Or the sun which slowly peeks?

Wonderful imagery and a great ending! ...On those foggy days, I always wonder if it will ever clear away... This was beautifully penned, Sara!

What a thought-provoking, well-structured poem. I am drawn to the wonderful painting of a situation. As if that were not enough engagement, the question at the end of the poem affords the reader an opportunity to come up with his or her own conclusion.
