Morning Fog

The thing about fog in the morning
before the sun rises and
burns away choices
before daylight locks things down
and rigidity sets in
it is a miasma of all possibilities
that may come your way today

Nights are fluid
only limited rules apply
until fog begins to shape night
into daylight’s probabilities
setting form and structure
into schedule and obligation
into plans and commitments
and limited choices
quashing imagination

Daylight feeds on time
night on dreams
but before daybreak
in early morning
in the fog
it is all still possible
