Sentinels in the Mist

On a morning walking
a veil drawn grey
across the Sun
light pale from the East
a scent of rain
droplets in the wind
a softness breathes
across my eyes
a corner turned
and there....
wraiths appearing
sentinels in the mist
they stand
marching down
to shadow
I walk on
the trees disolve
as my footsteps fade

I was browsing the nature category and luckily I came upon this lovely piece.

I enjoyed the read very much.

This evokes memories of when I was a farmer, rising early to morning mists, I miss those days.  Superb work.      Bill

This is wonderfully, Tom.  And also wonder-full.  It is magic.  And your words shine and flow like water.  --- David
