Ground mist

Low lie these fields and white
with mist that drapes the air in veils of pearl.
Furled the sheets when there is
no breath of wind, and only
stealth in the creeping of the night.

    1. That phenomenon of ground mist is one I always find a bit freakish. Sometimes it comes down the hill, sometimes it rises up from the stream. We’ve been having fog daily since the weekend, usually thin enough to see the sky overhead. Today it’s thicker. No wind to shift it.
