FOG: Wednesday Poetry Prompt

I thought I would try to get back into writing a little, so I considered this a little cheat.  Reader’s Digest offered this prompt:

For this week’s prompt, write a fog poem. The poem can be about a fog. It can incorporate a fog. Or it can delve into concepts like the “fog of war” or “foggy intentions.” Fog up the windows of your poetic spirit this week.

Poetry is not my strongest genre, but here is “Temptation”

Its selfish fingers trickle over the blades of grass,

the ripples of the creek,

the leaves on the tree

suffocating

stifling

releasing its weight

until it leaves behind a part of itself

giving in to the things

that it tried to keep from you and me.
