Fog

December 28, 2011

fog comes
down over towers
like children’s hands
that reach towards your mouth
in hope of catching
all your sleeping breath
while bored commuters
warm the world
by shivering in harmony
on mornings
when I watched you sleep
as I was leaving

  13. You leaving on “little cat feet” I’m sure. Nice tribute to love, air, transport, and the stuff that poems are made of. Hope all is well in your New Year, dear Anton!

    Very creative imagery throughout! Love this:
