WINTER FOG

WINTER FOG Grey fingers soft as a pickpocket’s Kingdom of the blind With no one-eyed man People appear and disappear for a moment Ghost visitors to the realm Steal in and out, And are lost. Feet pressed to the ground Are the only assurance That sooner or later The robbed land will reappear And the abdication of the sun will end.

Incrdible free verse, Syd. I especially love the last line about the "abdication of the sun." How creative! If this is for one of the free verse contests, it should definitely be a winner! Love, Carolyn
