The Fog- A Poem From The Frog

Updated on July 8, 2012

In 2007, Greg's 23 month old Grandson was killed. At that point, he found a need to write about his family, crime, and local issues.

Behind The Scenes

Before I allow you to read this, I must explain.

Many of you do not know me to write poetry; but the moon is in the perfect position tonight and the time is right for me to attempt some poetry.

I let my mind drift and my fingers type and this is what came to be from it.

I ask you of the poetry field to honestly grade this work and let me know how it sits.

I hope that the meaning you attain from the words in this poem will have meaning in your life. I have always considered poetry much like a painting; showing deep truths about the artists life.

Please read the poem and give your opinion. Thank you.

The Fog

Grabbing my sleeve
as I stroll
down the walkway
of life.

Darning the needles
that knit
my soul
into disparity.

It growls;
then purrs
an unrecognizable
tone.

It begs my indifference
to the helpless
humanity
that is unaware.

Slowly
the Son rises
and the haze
disappears
on the horizon.

      Thank you my friends--I found as I read it again, many meanings are coming through the words behind the words.

      I enjoyed reading and it was good. As ralwus said I am not a critic either and I think if you are getting what you want then you're on to a winner.

      Hope this means we are going to read some more.

      Take care.
