where observation and imagination meet nature in poetry

the future disappeared
along with the horizon
leaving the delicate determination of now

the photograph is a perfect one for your poem.
Moody and so beautiful.
Beautiful image and words.
This is beautiful.
Nice view of the fog covered trees.
Beautiful poetry and photo
Faerie land. Provocative poem.
This speaks volumes to me, both the familiar setting and your accompanying words. I often sense a similar focus in the fog; rather than obscuring, it gently fosters awareness on the moment. Whatever may be happening elsewhere is of no concern. Thank you for sharing!
That the past tense contrasts with the last word, reminds me how fog eventually lifts, leaving to art the possibility of saving what we think we saw and felt.
Outstanding, both the photo and your words, Catherine! 🙂 ❤

I love the poem, and I love fog photos, just went on a fog-walk last week myself. I tried to share this on my blog but wordpress has changed the format, again, and it’ll take a few hours for me to go through the system and figure out where everything is, again. Ha?
Beautifully captured in words and photo. You’re making me a tiny bit homesick for the east. But only a TINY bit. 🙂
The magic of poetry is saying so much with so little, thank you.
Another fine work.
I love ‘the delicate determination of now’ …. Jane
wow, beautiful thought & image
I feel like this should be the scene of a movie.
In a drama: that could be the favorite thinking spot for the introverted heroine. In this particular weather it was after a break-up.
In a thriller: it could the the place where the hero(ine) comes in contact with a ghost for the first time.
Very beautiful shot and words. I, too, like the feeling of light, caressing fog. It does hold you within the now and calms the mind. Funny, I also just blogged a photo and poem about time! Thank you for sharing your images and words.
WOW–exceptionally lovely, and yes–moody.
Pretty serene photo.
I really love this photo my friend! Happy Thursday wishes to you
And to you friend.
exquisite – both image and words!
Oh, very nice! ❤
Fantastic picture and perfect thought to ponder!

Fog creates a great atmosphere for pictures.
Beautiful and soulful
It’s in the now I like your words and image.
I enjoyed the way the poetry and photo reinforce each other. Lovely.
We don’t get much fog in my part of Texas. I miss it in a way. You never knew what is waiting for you out in the mist. Thanks for stopping by.
