In the Mist

In the Mist

A Poem by JE Falcon
"

Ah, the mist does strange things to imaginative people. And this is a poem from one such person.

"

In shadowed nights the visions come,

those haunting Scepters calling low,

reaching out as blood shall run.

Which path to take, which way to go?


The misting fog, in these dreams,

is dusted gray with pangs of blue,

then laced with hope for love to last,

and tied, so gently, to lovers, true.


The hills around have filled with tears

and I dare not call it a misty rain.

I see them cry, so some have said

that I have grown a tad insane.


But the shadows say, "That's not true,

you are as sane as anyone.

It is those clouds, those misting clouds,

that warp your mind when day is done."

I liked the honest thoughts my friend.

I agree with the above lines. Somehow I became a old man and now I know. We can do what we can only. Thank you for sharing your amazing words and thoughts.

Yes, sometimes winter's clouds do seem to twist my thoughts. Sanity, it feels sometimes, is relative.
I love the thoughts penned here. An excellent reflection on life.

We try, M.J., and someday I'll get it right. LOL
A first class write in my opinion. I do love the flow here and the use of rhyme and meter. I am fascinated by drifting mist. Have watched it so many times roll across the river bank, enveloping everything in sight. The movement is like a trail of ghostly veils. I have written of it myself and it certainly captures the imagination. Can be so eerie. Much enjoyed Falcon.

I agree and you are welcome my friend.
I love to watch the fog fall or creep from the earth and climb. I find it memorizing and it has inspired many a story and or poem.
I love what you have done. It stirs the imagination.

I have a vivid imagination, especially for the supernatural.
Mists, fog...they always give me a smile and the creeps at the same time.
This poem does that...very effectively.
