Oh, Look at This Day...

These are the days of poets...
looking out to the nothing,
fogged days, when neighbors disappear.
I relish this thought and long to be home to write, to create
in the warmth of the hearth,
where my soul rests and feeds
on each new hour I possess.
Rushing off to my one day's work in the city,
art's desire unquenched, but duty fulfilled.
Ah, to be home, one single mind
lost in thoughts...
Does it ever stop, you ask often...
hoping not so,
my mind whirls in this one possession...
my fantasy and it's will.

Oh, look at this day...

it never stops.. at least not for me.. the desire to be here content quite alone with my thoughts... no.. it never stops.....

The autumn fog hanging in our front yard is one of my favorite things in life. Beautiful photo and poetry that touched my heart.

I love this photo and poem.

I'm in Portland, Oregon this weekend. It's grey and misty here, too

I love those days when the world disappears for a while and I am left to dream of what I could and should be like. Lovely picture and touching poem!

Oh, Sharon, how well you put it. I like my work (lucky me) but I am always wanting to be by my fireside being creative, reading, or just enjoying the peace...

..Peaceful sanctuary calls me home
to be ever so busy doing...
doing...my heart's desire

There is something about mist and gog that stirs the meditative, poetic spirit. Lovely poem to complement a mystical photo.

Beautiful! Living by the coast as I do often have days like that in winter, such a great atmosphere.
