Morning Mist at Portage

Silently, the mist flowed over hills in the moonlight
Wrapping around the beachfront pines
Sliding over still waters
Glowing in the midnight moon
A blanket covering the Sound, stilling the owl

The moon-washed sea - grey, merging to silver
No ripples to break the stillness
Day comes, mist muffles murmurs from the beach
Nothing moves, sea shines in reflected God-Light
Breaking through the layers above

Mist withdraws, imperceptibly,
Faint breeze threatens the mirror surface, then fades
Watery sun tries a break through
Mist resists, returns, blue-grey, threatening
Sun wins, a glorious technicolor day
