When Fogs Collide

When Fogs Collide  
 
In a forest bent by breeze  
blowing branches over leaves  
came a thump, thump, thump in the midnight.  
All gone was the starlight,  
even absent was the moonlight,  
when a white fog glowed silent  
slipping through the trees.  
 
I froze and stopped from smiling  
‘cause my fear did find beguiling  
how this eerie froth of floating grace,  
ejecta from some spectral place,  
could turn and twist in one ‘bout face  
and send all fears colliding.  
   
It pulsed a light and started thumping,  
made me feel like jumping, jumping  
off to where I could have been  
so I could leap right from my skin  
and sprout some wings to ride the wind  
and feel my fears subsiding.  
 
Closer came it creeping, creeping  
but to me it seemed as leaping,  
like it had some ultra aim  
than scaring me out wits and brains  
which now in shock I must proclaim  
it passed me thumping, thumping.  
 
I turned to catch one moment’s bliss.  
A second fog did merge. They kissed.  
Tears I cried yet not for me  
but for two fogs heard jubilantly  
who found in a universe of sky and mist  
each other on a forest plain like this.  
 
I felt then prized over all above  
to have witnessed the thumpings of fogs in Love  
and realized that Love is the searching pulse  
of a heart that’s thumping for someone else.  
And “just” when you think Life is over and blue,  
you’ll turn and a thumping will be looking at you!
