An Unexpected Visitor Has Arrived


I Haven't Seen You In A Long Time

You certainly keep us guessing

What we think we know is hidden

What we want is slowly gone

I scratch my head and think

How long will you stay?

It is not like I don't like you

You always come at short notice

You can be a little bit dangerous and cause some trouble

Most of the time you just slow me down

I sometimes enjoy your theatrical flair

You like to show off and strut your stuff

You cover a lot of ground

I can't say your not good at what you do

Because I don't know anyone that can do what you do

You are kind of a jokester

Funny at heart

Outrageous and over the top

Grand in nature and nothing is too big for you

Maybe you will be here for a day or two

The change in weather brings you to town

You came late last night and are still here today

After a few days, I am sure you will leave

Quietly like when you snuck in

Nobody seen you come

Nobody will see you go

We sometimes are confused and bewildered

Some people have a few other names for you

For me, you will always be simply

Ann Carr I think fog and snow are close cousins. They both keep us on our toes and are full of surprises. Driving home the other night got a bit scary. I cut my speed down from 65 to 60 miles an hour. It is hard to drive into the unknown. My normal drive goes from an hour and a half to almost two hours. It makes me appreciate the good driving on other days. Thank you so much for reading and sharing. The fog has left and it might be heading your way.(lol) Have a beautiful holiday and may the fun never stop.

Great atmospherics! I actually thought it was snow to start with!

Fog is so disorienting isn't it? I hate driving in it as all the usual kerb side cues are gone. It's like driving in midair.

Merry Christmas to you and happy new year; let's hope it's a better one!

DW Davis I'm in a fog most of the time even when the fog is long gone. At least for a few days, I get to blame it on the real thing. Thank you for making me laugh too. We already had fourteen inches in the last storm. I hope you are doing well. Merry Christmas and have a Happy New Year.

Thanks for the smile this morning. Very clever poem. I was expecting the visitor to be snow. You got me, thought. I guess it was the fog of not having had my coffee yet.
