The Fog Creeps In...


3/22/10 Saugatuck River

...On little cat feet.
It sits on silent haunches,
Looking over harbor and city,
And then moves on.

~ Carl Sandburg

  1. I walked into the bedroom last night and told my Hunny that Carl Sandburg was smoking something when he wrote that poem. Our cat never creeps. He sounds like an elephant coming down the stairs and running down the hall. I can't believe you quoted it the day after we had that conversation! :)

  11. I would think with that much fog you wouldn't be able to get a clear shot. This is wonderful.

  12. Oh it's beautiful! What a great shot. We so rarely get fog out here, so it's one of the images I absolutely adore. It looks so mysterious, as if it is concealing something wondrous. A breeze will blow through and reveal a towering wizard, perhaps. Doesn't it always look as if fog conceals something, and in our imaginations it is never something mundane.

    It isn't Carl and Sue's lake house on the other shore ("When are they going to trim those Juniper Bushes?!? They look like they are trying to eat the house!")...it always seems as if somewhere in the fog is a door to another realm, or another time.

    It's almost a good thing that fog so truly sucks to drive in, because it presents such an invitation to stare at, and daydream.

    Uh...kind of like what I'm doing :-) Congratulations of the post of the week mention over at Hilary's blog. I have a mortifying confession...well, not mortifying as I haven't run around saying this, at all, actually...but I always credited that poem above incorrectly. For some reason I had it in my head it was t s eliot.l For at least twenty years I've thought that.

    So you're picture of fog actually provided some new clarity, which is wonderfully ironic.
