Misty Morn


I cannot find today
Though it surrounds me
It does not reveal itself

The sound of breakers
Splash against the pilings
Rub against the shore

The lonesome song of bell buoys
Cast about in obscurity
Searching for something, anything

The lighthouse calls
With a metronomes cadence
Beckoning methodically

Boats tease their moorings
Unsuccessfully succumbing
To the seduction of the sea

Harbor smells assault my senses
Reassuring me of it’s presence
While hiding in the mist

Where are you?
Why do you avoid me?

Is it a game where I must seek?

I search aimlessly knowing
That you will not be found
Til time is on your side

I wait, impatiently
Until the curtain lifts
And the grayness retreats

Golden rays of sun
Peek beneath the fog
Slip across calm waters

Monochrome morn
Bursts forth with color
Exposing a new horizon

I have found today

About oldmainer

I am a retired manager living in Southern Maine and a would be writer of poetry, narratives, short stories, and random opinions, and that's how Oldmainer was born. Recently, I decided to try an experiment. I added photography to the mix, using only a cheap cell phone with a limited camera and the editing software that came with it, and added the blog site Inklings at poormanspoet.wordpress.com to showcase the results. So, feel free to use whatever you find interesting or worthy, but please honor the terms of my copyright when and if you do. They may not be much, but they are still a piece of me. I appreciate your checking me out and hope that you find something that will encourage a return visit. Thanks for stopping by.

    Beautiful poem…A very powerful opening verse, and equally the end.

    Love, Mehak
