 Morning Mist

Morning Mist is based on using the pattern of Philip Larkin’s Days i.e. short lines, almost the same syllables and a ten line stanza.


Rigid poker reeds
clash with pink lilies,
mallards flap feathers
on the mist-kissed lake.
Auburn and silvered leaves
flutter in the light breeze,
tepid sun loosens fog,
soothing away the ashen sheet.
Dragonflies dance tiptoe
in iced-blue coats.
