My Cart 


Into this foggy morning comes a song
Judith Heron

driven by no other instrument than dew
how it gathers into one small drop
falls from a fading apple leaf
and this music goes on
all over the tree
until faint sun bursts forth
October hush of morning
takes a bow

Because I know the fog and its spider web October magic, I love this poem. Judith has caught it.

Lovely. The lack of punctuation is perfect for this poem.
