Monsters!

Quiet mist and secret

Quiet mist and secret

In the morning lies

And all the world within

Asleep,  hidden for a time.

And all the World sleeping

Across the mirrored deep

Hard against brooding trees

Open to innocence or ill

Two homely structures still.

In silent shallows near

What waits?  What waits

For mist to thicken or to clear?

What waits for mist to thicken or to clear?

Creature dark and threat filled near

Hidden from the light

Betrayer of the peace of day

Friend of  fear and fright,

Or something simple slow to die

Or something simple slow to die

That hurrying a misty morn

We let our mind deceive our eye

Allowing monsters to be born.

Pass this way and wonder

Pass this way and wonder if

The mist low on the dark cool depths

Is all and only what you see in it

Or much, much more of life and death.
