The Mist

Our prompt at A Prompt Each Day today is one word, Light.

I rarely write verse, but now and again I flex my poetic muscles to make sure they are still in working order!



In the days last light
a silver mist meanders
twixt the trees.

Swirling
slowly.
Chilling the air
midst the shadows of night.

  1. A little spooky, but i could actually visualize a tree swirling outside a window in the darkness of the night

  2. The words and the picture are perfect together. We're in the middle of summer when the mist is hot and steamy humid awfulness instead of cooling.

    1. We are also mid-summer here, but hot and steamy we certainly are not!

  3. Nice! Reminds me when the fog mixes with the trees in California.

  4. That is lovely. The words and image give me a cool feeling despite the scorching weather in my tiny corner of the world. Thank you for sharing.

  5. Chilling (in the temperature sense) and atmospheric. Love the word 'twixt' - a word solely for poetry :-)

    1. Isn't it though! It certainly not a word I utter that often.
