Fog - Poem by Barry Middleton

it comes to soften the glare
as it drifts in from the bay

it unites the sky and sea
it intends to teach a lesson
...
too much noise and light
confuse the fragile senses

so that the mind must reel
from imaginary conviction
...
the fog creates uncertainty
it disguises every belief

it paints with shadowy hue
the arrogant and pompous
...
armored in a healthy doubt
hides essential muted truth

the elusive gift of love
the obscurity of brotherhood
