Zephyrs, Fogs and Dreams

'in the fog'
Fiction: Zephyrs, Fogs and Dreams

The morning fog weaves through the sky and earth. It clings to the air gently like a child holding on. A turn here, a turn there, the fog is there, ever so slightly clouding all views.

The clouds too choose to commit to the fate of darkening the day. Though if you look up, you would not see them, only the thin veil of the fog.

A small girl walks with a flashlight in her hand and her school bag on her back. She smiles at the fog and the streetlights that had to be turned on here and there.

The path to school is always long and dull but today, the girl delights in the fog. She have never seen the streets like this before. Perhaps a fairy has decided to cover the city in this cloud of dreams, she thought. People around her moves with a slight languid but the girl doesn't notice.

The winter zephyr softly brushes against her cheeks. Her excitement grows and she imagines there must be a castle or a land of wonder beyond the fog. Perhaps if she walks far enough, she will find it just around the corner. She pauses at the red light with her eyes upward and a smile on her lips.

  3. I love fog, but almost never see any, maybe once or twice a year but it is soon gone once the sun is fully risen.

    1. fogs don't last long which sometimes is good and sometimes you, I, kind of want it to last longer just because it doesn't happen often.

      thanks for visiting, have a lovely day.

  6. Lissa,

    There is something magical about the fog. I love it when we go to the mountains with the fog cascading across the road like the ocean and low clouds nestled in the valley making the mountains look like islands. It's a breathtaking view always and sometimes a bit eerie, especially when dusk draws near. :)

    I have a lot of catching up to do with you and am starting backwards in the alphabet. Yes, I'm a bit zany I know but that's reason to love me all the more. :)
