drifting in trees
The weight of night,
asking to stay
Dawn marches on,
chasing the stars
Darkness fades out,
giving new light
Morning Mist in Bath, England

Special Note: This poem also marks the end of the Writer’s Digest 2013 November Poem A Day Chapbook Challenge. I wrote these lines in response to the November 30th prompt, write a disappearing poem. They just happened to fit perfectly with the photograph I was planning to use for this week’s Sunday Abroad. I love it when that happens!

The mist is typical of Aquae Sulis.

Thank you so much! I’m so glad we crossed poetic paths as well, I enjoy your work! It’s a great challenge…I love the push or nudge, to write every day. It’s neat to see what happens in the cycle of a month. 🙂
