My Favorite Things

Becca said in a comment that she was having a dense pea-soup fog day. Those words took me back to my childhood. I grew up in the Canadian maritimes, near the ocean with its fog, foghorns, and delicious briny fishy smell. I loved that weather, and that rocky land where everything was green and gray. And I love this poem, too, written some time ago but still one of my favorites.

Grayscale

 

pearl

pigeon

pewter spoon

silver of a slivered moon

weathered

foggy

finest mist

winter trees ice kissed

 

 

asphalt

concrete

dappled mare

a grandmother’s lustrous hair

snow sky

shot silk

hot stream of morning milk

 

 

cat’s fur

careful mouse

small stones in water gleaming

pregnant clouds

surly ocean

sidewalks’ sudden summer steaming

 

gravel

granite

willow fuzz

dark December maple’s bark

fog horn

pea soup

bat-swift shadows cross the dark

 

 

between the white of paper

and the black of ink

are a dozen ways to think–

half a hundred subtler hues —

 

 

you choose.
