Misty Morn

Though it surrounds me
I cannot find today
I am cloaked instead
By a misty morn

Gentle breakers kiss the pier
Bell buoys peal forlornly
Casting about in obscurity
Searching

A distant lighthouse responds
It’s mesmeric cadence
Beckons

Boats tease their moorings
Longing to succumb
To the seduction of the sea

The harbors fragrance
Assaults my senses
Reassuring it’s presence
While hiding in the mist

Slowly, the pallid veil
Ascends shyly
Exposing a golden ray
Hidden beneath

Today has found me

About oldmainer

I am a retired manager living in Southern Maine and a would be writer of poetry, narratives, short stories, and random opinions, and that's how Oldmainer was born. Recently, I decided to try an experiment. I added photography to the mix, using only a cheap cell phone with a limited camera and the editing software that came with it, and added the blog site Inklings at poormanspoet.wordpress.com to showcase the results. So, feel free to use whatever you find interesting or worthy, but please honor the terms of my copyright when and if you do. They may not be much, but they are still a piece of me. I appreciate your checking me out and hope that you find something that will encourage a return visit. Thanks for stopping by.

  2. Lovely. You do know that dinosaurs hide in the fog, right? They could step out at any time, so be careful if you’re outside. 🙂 They come back if they think no one can see them.
