The fog rolled in
as the city wept,
and with it brought a hush,
a message from the Willamette
to the city on its shores:

Thanks! 🙂 I’m not sure what it is about fog, but it somehow mutes everything – a welcome phenomenon in cities, I think.

This happens with snow as well I think

Yes, I believe you’re right.

As a former resident of Portland, I found so much to love in this poem. Thank you for sharing.

Thanks for the lovely words, Sara. As someone who grew up in the sun, the fog and the rain was a little difficult to get used to! A light box for winter is definitely a must.

This makes me so curious about the rest of the story! True, true, one of the great gifts of a short, exceptionally well written poem.

I could read and re-read this for hours! It feels silent and rolling and effortless. I am a big fan of your poetry. You have a natural gift for verse.

THANKS!!! 😀 I didn’t start writing poetry until a couple years ago when I took a photography class – didn’t think I was good enough!

I’m a fan 🙂
