Through the Mist

Through the Mist

 

The gray dawn yawns

without the sun in sight

and the autumn sky shifts

with a misty cobweb of fog,

 

Through the wet film

the tree’s green takes on a dusty shade

without reflection,

just a tinge

of its former self dares intrude.

 

A clammy chill lies on my skin

spreading cold up

to the base of my neck

like a screech too shrill.

 

Mornings like these I want to crawl

back to my cocoon,

that warm spot

buried deep beneath our downy quilt

and dream of you beside me

on a summer afternoon.

--- Judi Van Gorder

It's true...no matter how demanding your daily schedule may be, the onset of such weather will make one feel quite uncomfortable. The cocoon you just left, will look even more inviting.
