The following was inspired by a particularly hazy morning over the River Tay on my drive into work one morning last year.


sunrise with trees

Haze descends to meet the lake
as full moon clings on to morn
A latent thief
outstaying her welcome
Tenacious and unashamed
it mocks the weak daylight
penetrating the sky

The dawn is drowsy
A stranger
Cowed by lunar supremacy
Ashamed to conquer the sky

Silently watching,
the lake glistens
Stretches up
to cushion the falling mist
And calmly reflects
the subdued conflict above
