Wednesday Poetry Prompts: 244

I hope everyone had a fun and successful November of poeming. I know I did. Now, it's time to get back to our Wednesday poetic gatherings (until April's poem-a-day challenge).

For this week's prompt, write a fog poem. The poem can be about a fog. It can incorporate a fog. Or it can delve into concepts like the "fog of war" or "foggy intentions." Fog up the windows of your poetic spirit this week. Another prompt next Wednesday.

Here's my attempt at a fog poem:

"Return"

Fogs remind me of your footsteps
fading from me and how I let

you leave. The moon veils and unveils
intentions (some good, others not)

on a monthly cycle. Mirrors
scare me for what they might reveal,

doors for what they conceal. When you
leave, I have to say a quick prayer

and have faith that you will return.

Master the craft of writing fiction!Learn how.
