Iron Mountain Fog

This fog comes,
not on “little cat’s feet”,
but with the stealthy stride
of a larger beast.
It drains away all color
and obscures familiar landmarks
and it leaves your spine aquiver
and its kiss upon your cheek.

    WOW! This says a lot in such a short piece. Yes I agree that the fog of love can be as stealthily like a panther on the prowl. Thank you for sharing.

    Love& hugs,
