Yes, the wintry fog disappears under sun, or in wind... but not the fog in our mind and life may not. well said.

There is both literal and figurative fog. I read this poem and thought about the notion of being alone in a crowd. A superb verse, Ali. Very profound.

Close your eyes, is it make a different for you... Because either one u still can see ahead in front of u... But you can see more than eyes can see. This isolation, we can live around thousand people but we still have our soul alone in the world, it can be powerful way to manage views, because we put less boundary to refine it.

Though this poem was written sometime ago, it has greater relevance now as we are passing through a period of forced isolation! Actually there is no fog before our eyes, but our lives have turned foggy. We cannot see or guess what is happening in the outside world.

sometimes we inflict fog on ourselves, other times people inflict it on us because they are weary or wary or tremendously troubled. I really like this piece- it made me think. 10+

When there is fog before our eyes, we can not see ihings clearly.Yes, there are certain things like doubt, fear, lie or misunderstanding that block our clear perception. A powerful three liner, thanks for sharing.

It is the depth of your three-liner that I think brought me back to your poem, dear poet.

Society is badly affected by a fog and the sun is weak and feeble. We need a real sunrise.
