late night mist descends

late night mist descends

late night mist descends
valley shrouded in stillness
tall grass gently bends

shifting visions follow me
come to life within my dreams

This tanka is my response to Jane Dougherty’s A Month with Yeats: Day Eighteen (each day a new Yeats quote).

“The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half-light”
W.B. Yeats
