Poetry and Pictures - Weather

American artist Albert Bierstadt painted landscapes of the western United States during the nineteenth century. He was a part of the Hudson River School, a group of painters who painted in a style that is sometimes called Luminism. In the center of the valley in this painting there is a low stratus cloud also called fog. There are some stratocumulus in the upper right.

Lifting
by Sally Plumb, age 68, England

The fog is soaking
up the dull, damp sky
as she twists and turns
in leafless lane,
then seeps with gold
as her mind unfolds
to quiet Novembers slackened day.

A dampened face
and dampened hand
feel gentle in the golden mist,
a moistened lace,
in soft, sweet grace,
the touch of a natural kiss.
