The Mist



The Mist

At times I see the mist
As the sun rises in the East.
I see it among the trees
Kissing the yellow, amber and green leaves;
Clinging to their branches and twigs;

Saying hello to birds and bees,
As they await the morning sunburst.
Life moves--a seed from ground would burst;
Behold! as leaves unfold seedlings;
Life awakens in all our surroundings.

The sun rises higher...and higher
The mist can no longer linger
And it's shape and form disappear--
Vanishing into thin air--
Dying in the atmosphere.

It reappears tomorrow
On every Green Pine bough
An end, there'll never be
As mist is born in every new dawn.

vk, that is a very nice observation, and, yes, you feel it.

The drawing is made of markers and I used colored pencil for the sky, on a piece of paper.

I'll check out that site you gave me. Thanks.

Mari said...

sasha, oo nga sa bundok sa probinsiya medyo malamig at meron ngang mist. Bagiuo, of course. LOL

Thanks for your visit, and have a great weekend.

ghee, not really. Meron pa ring hahanapin...he he he

Have a good weekend.

pepe, yeah, I got yah. I used markers! LOL But for the sky I used colored pencil, since I don't have a light blue marker; I have only a few colors. At the last minute I thought...hmm...maybe, I can try my brand new markers...and...tadaaahhh. It came out okay!

Have a good one.

ebb tide, thanks.

Have a great weekend.

cat, magbabad ka sa tubig. LOL Drink plenty of water to avoid heat stroke. Okay?

Enjoy your weekend.

enoc said...

wow.. is that your composition? galing naman.

Mari said...

enoc Yeah. Thanks.

ann said...

Galing naman! Artist ka talaga. Buti may time ka to paint, matagal din yata gawin yan.

Mari said...

ann, salamat napasyal ka. Markers lang yan sa maliit na papel--11" x 8.5"--kaya madali lang. Ang oil paint ang matagal.

Thanks again for your visit.

sasha said...
