Calm My Spirit

A calm and foggy morning in Virginia Beach. (Click picture for larger view) Posted by Picasa
"Gradual sinks the breeze
Into a perfect calm; that not a breath
I heard to quiver thro' the closing woods,
Or rustling turn the many twinkling leaves,
Of aspen tall. The uncurling floods diffus'd
In glassy breadth, seen through delusive lapse
Forgetful of their course.
'Tis silence all,
And pleasing expectation."
~ James Thomson (Scottish poet, 1700 - 1748)
A cool January morning, the wind completely calm and fog spreads over the coast, both land and sea. The landscape changes from ordinary to a fairy land of wispy smoke and glassy reflections. I love these days. They calm my spirit.
