Chilled mist

Chilled mist

A thick,
chilled mist
hovers over
the earth —
birds
have left
their worms
for shelter —
fossils
huddle &
shiver in
silent tombs.

  4. This made me shiver. Fantastic.

    • Thank you, my friend! I’m glad you enjoyed it πŸ™‚ It’s quite rainy here in Oregon, so this poem sums up the wet, Winter atmosphere. As I write this, fat water droplets are crashing down, vibrating through the roof & cascading under eaves. Hope you have a wonderful week!
      Cheers,
      Tyler
