Fog - Poem by Nick Burr

The chilled air
Unrols a milky shroud
Embracing all around
Big and small
Consumed together

Not even light escapes
The power of a thousand candles
Is swallowed whole
Like the supper
Of a hungry child

I walk forward
It offers no resistance
Yet to sight
Unyielding
As the strongest wall

So the path before me
Is my only guide
As step by step
I am welcomed
Into the wintry haze
