The Mist (tanka)

Comfort is the mist

Which softens the bitter edge

In uncertain veils

Swept a maiden in its arms

That she might not see the truth

      Very nicely done, that she might not see the truth indeed.

      Oh, the things we don't see when we intentionally do not want to see and more often they are all in the name of love. :)

      Wow, Martin. I was thinking in a totally different direction. That's the beauty of the written word: each reader comes to his/her own conclusion and perspective.

      Quite often the truth is out there but we are not aware of it.

      So very lovely. I think your use of the elf princess applies well here!
