Morning Fog, Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco Bay, San Francisco, California, United States of America

The Fog

In the morning, the fog
Commuters fill the lanes
On their way into the city
They cannot see
But know too well

It’s there
In the haze
Diminutive towers
Shadows beneath a piercing sun

As they are shadows
Piercing the shroud
Beneath a sky of mottled blue

Crystalline clear; hard-edged architecture

Though the fog lays still upon commuters

Chink in the gloom once unbroken, Panamint Valley, Death Valley National Park, California, United States of America

Compass Rose

Through chink in once unbroken gloom
Evanescent hopeful gleam
Turn of night
Will soon enough extinguish

Glow yet held clear and bright
Deep within a tempered heart
A compass knows the way to north
Light, the steel by which love reckons

Ever should the dark engulf
I shall find my way
Illumined by the rose within
No shadow may diminish

Night gives way to morning
Clouds soon enough are lifted
To the souls of seeking hearts
Horizon always beckons
