small stones – January 8,2016

dark clouds weigh
heavily upon the town
a misty fog cuddles
against roof-tops
a fine mist slicks the roads
winter’s chill creeps
into cracks and crevices
seeps into my toes

    Reblogged this on Insights From The Edge and commented:
    I love the imagery here. Reminds me of the fog tiptoeing in like a cat…

  2. Beautiful imagery. I felt inside your small stones piece.
    As to your discussion with Michael — I wonder how women managed before we were “allowed” to wear shorts, short skirts, and bath suits when the weather heated up!
    Even as a kid, we still seemed to wear a lot more — like icky, scratchy crinolines!
    Here, it’s been so much warmer than normal, talking about air conditioning in January doesn’t sound as silly as it might other wise.
    “Thirty-degrees+ above normal Christmas Eve/Christmas Day,” she notes. “Still haven’t gotten my box of winter outdoor stuff down from the attic.”

      Thank you 🙂 yes… it must have been rough on women in the past… probably why people carried smelling salts around all the time. Here’s hoping you get some winter weather soon 🙂

  3. I take it that it is cold and bleak out your way Lori….I do the notion of it seeping into your toes…..lovely image….
