Embracing each others warmth

They prey on the dead

Carnivorous scavengers

Killing’s not their style

Curious Kitten

Inquisitive one

Fascinated by the glow

Intensely focused

 

Unable to move

Attracted by shiny things

Hypnotized kitten

Floating, relaxing

Fog Haiku

This haiku was inspired by a photo taken by my good friend Bill Holland.

Fog is misconstrued

Some call fog smog and it’s not

Only Similar

 

Smog is pollution

Fog, natures droplets in air

A big difference

 

Smog can be eerie

Mysteriously unknown

What is out of view
