Poem: “I am not how you perceive”

Written for the Word of the Day Challenge and dVerse Poets’ Pub.


I am not

how you perceive.

If you find me

as I wake,

you will see

I am made of aether

undulating upward to the sky:

fog over

a lake-bed at dawn.

The fog and I

slip past you;

I linger at your cheek.
