As the fog rolls in

 I watch through the glass

            as the fog rolls in,

marking the end

            of a beautiful day.

 

The trees and the houses

            slowly disappear,

leaving us here

            to quietly assay.

 

The night shadows dance

            on the wall,

in the hall

            to the fires crackling rhythm.

 

 Close by the fire

            we sip from our cups,

without looking up

            caught in our own terminus ad quem.

This is a very serene and beautiful poem.I love it.The imagery is so rich and I can picture this scene well in my mind.What does terminus ad quem mean? Is that Latin? Thanks for sharing this beautiful poem. Terry

What an original way to signal a need for a cerebral friend! Loved your creative progression from the real to the metaphoric. Or was it the other way around? Sweet mystery such ambiguity.

Poetry is either something that lives like fire inside you or else it is nothing, an empty formalized bore around which pedants can endlessly drone their notes and explanations.
