    When Fogs Collide

    In a forest bent by breeze,
    blowing branches over leaves,
    came a thump, thump, thump in the midnight. All gone was the starlight,
    even absent was the moonlight
    but a white fog glowed silent, slipping thru the trees.

    I stopped and froze from smiling
    ‘cause my fear did find beguiling
    how this eerie froth of floating grace,
    ejecta from some spectral place,
    could turn and twist in one ‘bout face
    and send my fears colliding.

    It pulsed a light and started thumping,
    made me feel like jumping, jumping
    off to where I could have been
    so I could jump right from my skin
    and sprout some wings to ride the wind
    and feel my fears subsiding.

    Closer came it creeping, creeping
    but to me it seemed as leaping
    like it had some ultra aim
    than scaring me out wits and brains
    which now in shock I must proclaim
    it passed me thumping, thumping.

    I turned to catch one moment’s bliss.
    A second fog did merge. They kissed.
    Tears I cried yet not for me
    but for two fogs heard jubilantly
    who found in a universe of sky and mist
    each another on a forest plain like this

    and I felt prized over all above
    to have witnessed the thumpings of fogs in Love and realized that Love is the searching pulse of a heart that’s thumping for someone else. And “just” when you think life is
    over or blue, you’ll turn and a thumping will be looking at you !

    when i first saw the title, my eyes played tricks on me--i saw "When Frogs Collide" ... and i wondered how you were going to work that. It wasn't until i opened it up that i realized my error. had a little laugh.:) on that one. Reading it, it had that old English feel to it. Nice.

    there's a kiss of love in all things. even fogs.

    the river floweth.

    baller – When a boy frog thumps a croak and leaps to a lily pad where there’s a girl frog, perhaps it’s not much different than the boy cloud thumping while leaping for the girl cloud in this poetic work while totally ignoring me in pursuit of that elusive kiss. Whoa! It shows in either case that we’re all just spectators and perhaps given a golden opportunity to learn some truths we only thought were ours exclusively. You’re right baller. There’s a kiss of love in all things and that should take away any excuse that there’s nothing to write about. The river floweth, even in a fog. Thanks. HH

    Rich - This work was created for those who have fallen in Love or are about to fall in Love or hope to fall in Love because it’s a magnetizing pulse we hunger for either overtly or secretly. We’re willing to starve ‘til it comes and voraciously feed on its impact when it does, later to languish in its afterglow. And when it’s gone, we just never knew there were that many tears inside to miss all those wonderful ‘sugar smacks’ which no longer will be there. Thanks for stopping by Rich and ‘flowing’ a little here with us fogs. HH

    MzBlkAngel – I’m so very happy you liked this. If you ever find yourself in the middle of a powerfull and unavoidable ‘love flow’ headed straight your way, stand tall, open wide your arms, hold your head back and yell “INCOMING” at the top of your voice. When it hits, it’ll put a smile on you that can’t be removed without medical consultation. I once yelled it at the top of my voice. That was five decades ago and I’m still that boy frog(ribbit) who can’t wait to leap to that lily pad where he finds his girl frog(ribbit, ribbit). Not only that….I even kept the SMILE too. Whoa! You’re right MzBlkAngel, love does flow everywhere with time. Thanks for spendin’ some here. HH
    P.S. – Quick! Turn around! Was that a ‘thumping’ looking at you just now! LOL.
