TOWER IN THE FOG

TOWER IN THE FOG

have wandered in this fog for many hours,
Not sure how much time has passed by me,
It's quiet in here in a strange sort of way,
Neither light or dark , Cold or hot,
Seems to be no direction,
Can't see beyond my own hand,
How long have I been here?
I have seen a shadow ahead of me,
A darker shape of fog?
I reach it, Is it a wall, I follow around,
Seems to be a tower, But how high does it go?
I look into the entrance, There are stairs,
Leading up beyond my vision, I start to climb,
The steps are damp so I hug the wall,
Thinking as I climb as to how I arrived here,
I have no desire to eat or drink, I'm not tired,
So I will just keep climbing,
As before time holds no meaning to me,
But through the fog I see a glow,
The higher I go the brighter it gets,
I finally arrive at the top of the tower,
I have to shield my eyes, The light is so bright,
There in front of me is the Moon, So close,
I reach out as if to touch it, So close,
It fills my vision, It is magnificent,
Every crater, mountain and valley,
I stand upon the top of the tower,
Below me is fog, Rolling like and ocean,
I stand upon the top of the world,
I stand alone, Time has stopped.

This reads like a segment from dream time...suspending both sensations and perceptions in the fog!

The fog rolling bye like the sea below... this poem rolled of my lips as I was reading it like a song from before..... nice well done.... red

If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry.

Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) American poet.
