  • Fog drops her curtain

    Over lake and waves

    Gently lapping at the shore
  • Wrapping forest and sea

    In a soft grey blanket

    Of tender silky warmth.
  • Startled ducks fly

    Into the mist
  • While soft amber light

    Gives a soft glow

    To guide the way home

    To the light

    Within my heart.
