misty fog

River, Marina Moevs, 2005
I walk in the misty fog
the dust under my feet speaks to me
a tale of mirrored magic
hidden in the mystical fog

pebbles pave the way
branches kiss the sky
bending to the will of the earth
I pick the dust caress it carefully

smiling at its tale
I box it under a tree
the leaves hide me from the magic
in the opaque angles of light

I raise my head
feel an auspicious sign
look up to the sky
see it lined with gold

"I search for solid mass, but find vacuumed dreams"

I know of the "vacuumed dreams"

I really enjoyed the journey of this piece

Margaret said...

The poem seems so uplifting ... vacuumed dreams is a wonderful phrase, but it seem so contradictory to the rest of the poem. Or was that your intent?
