The Eclectic Pen - The Garden on a Foggy Night (written to the neighbor's cat)

Date Submitted: 2/15/2007
Genre: Literature & Fiction » Poetry
Words: 78

  The shifting, pale tendrils lie close to the ground
And embrace the trunks of the pines;
And the braches of pines stir forward and back
In misty and wispy lines.

The garden is silent except for the sounds
Of moisture as it falls to the grass;
And all is in darkness and shadow deep
Allowing the moonlight to pass.

The slow moving softness of the earthbound cloud
Gently covers all blossom and moss,
And the pines sing a sigh and whisper a tear
For the sadness of Moonlight's loss.
