Since most of the country has been having such heat, I thought that a little mist and rain would at least make us feel cool for a moment. So here are some of the mist pictures I have taken in the last few months. To go with it is a little original free verse to further set the mood.
Mist, it cools and refreshes
Swirling and drifting it wraps us
It embraces us
In the low light of night it is white
In the street light each little droplet is seen
Throw up your arms and celebrate the mist
Dance in its cooling touch!
Mist, It covers all
By day it turns the world grey
It erases the far away
It allows the close up to come into focus
It drifts past like a fine sheer scarf
Slow down and explore that which is at hand!
Mist, it is like a cotton blanket in summer
A woolie blanket in winter
It makes you want to pull in
To bake or cook,
To curl up with a cup of tea and a good book
Mist is magical
It makes you believe in faeries
It brings the long ago to you
It can be eerie
It transports you to far away places and times long gone.
Mist, I love mist!
Tarts, I hope you are as refreshed as I am after looking at the pictures. I love that I have figured out how to put captions on the pictures.
