The Fragile Fog
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

The Fragile Fog

Dawn breaks clear and breeze begins -
leans the many grasses -
rolling knolls, valleys green -
moving, it amasses -
moisture up from silent pond,
a vapor freely born -
confusing fogs of dampness, there's -
another one to warn -
of world's prideful ignorance,
of want and selfish greed.
Another one oblivious
to warnings he should heed.
Slow and patient hovering,
brings truth so plain to see -
but blindness seizes evil hearts
and there will never be -
changes to the inner soul
that lingers ever past.
Then fades away, the temperate fog -
as time has fleeted fast.
God creates, then man destroys
a life, so visible -
but Jesus comes to heal the sick,
the body, spiritual.
Jesus given for our souls,
our Father still awaits -
while life is like the fragile fog
which quickly dissipates.

Earth, or all eternity -
two choices we must weigh -
before the fog has lifted and
life vanishes away.
