When the fog kissed the ground

Spread the love

She creeps quietly into early hours
of the morning,Β inundating gentle
feelings and thoughts into the grey
and equatorial haze that threatens
to linger inside most fragile mind.
The fog brings out a darker side to
everything, reminds put not eggs
in one basket.

  11. Grace says:

    I love morning walks but not too foggy, ha ~ I would think one is musing and planning something – which is good not to put all the eggs in 1 basket ~

    1. Sanaa says:

      Thank you so much, Grace πŸ˜€ so glad you liked it ❀️

  12. “The fog brings out a darker side to everything, reminds put not eggs in one basket.”
    – wise advise, Sanaa !
    Though, I love mornings with a bit of fog πŸ˜€

  13. Truedessa says:

    I think it is wise not to keep all eggs in one basket, as one never knows when you might need it. There is something mystical about fog.

  16. Dwight says:

    I like the hot equatorial haze that hang around in the mind…. disturbing our minds… Now what might those eggs be that get separated into other baskets??

    The fog brings out a darker
    side to everything,

    It can be a damper Sanaa, to a well-thought-out schedule frustrating good intentions.
