Molten gold

One chilly morning, the fog lay like

A silken scarf across the cemetery.

The church rose out of the golden mist

Like a ship riding on misty waves.

A caretaker’s van looked

Picturesque against the burnished sky;

Fog.jpg

And oh, the trees!

They floated in that sky of molten gold!

I’ll only be posting once this week as it gets crazy busy in the run-up to Christmas.

And don’t forget Skywatch.
