Happy Friday, everyone! Today’s poem is an elegy with the topic of “fog”. As someone who tries to stay positive and happy, I was a little nervous about writing an elegy poem as they are typically associated with sad events. That being said, I’ve found that good writing must learn to describe a variety of emotions, so just because I don’t want to write about sad stuff doesn’t mean I am off the hook on writing a sad poem!
Today’s poem is from the perspective of someone who has lost the love of her life and the grief that follows. As a person of faith, I also prescribe to the notion that even after death there is the hope of seeing my loved ones again in Heaven. Still, the loss of someone close may still bring pain and sadness despite that hope, as we can’t help but miss our loved ones when they are gone.
So here is “The Fog”. Try not to feel too sad as happier posts will follow after the weekend!
