Misty Morn

Fog muddled boundaries between lake and sky. Six mallards, dark specks on the grey lake, chattered in a group; one lone male sat on the far side of the path. Blackbirds squawked, sparrows chirped; all obscured by the grey above. In the fervor of this curious weather, the lake was alive with fowl exhortation. A cool vapor moistened my face and from time to time the mist gathered into a raindrop that plopped on my head.

Walk through morning mist
dampens hair, inspires soul in
mystic atmosphere

  1. Misty Morn suspends thought. 🙂

    “It is a good idea to be alone in a garden at dawn or dark so that all its shy presence may haunt you and possess you in a reverie of suspended thought.” James Douglas (1803-1887)

    1. Great quote, CES. Thanks. I will be up before dawn tomorrow to catch a glimpse of the total solar eclipse just where this photo was taken, in the park near my house. I hope wherever you are you can see it, too.
