Poem #5 – The Fog

The sun hides behind the clouds

I have not seen a fog so thick in years

Though I can see clearly in front of me

I wonder if my brain still resides behind my ears


I yell to my family that dinner will be ready soon

Baked chicken and sautéed veggies covered in melted provolone

Just as I am ready to set the table

I realize that I never turned the oven on


Relaxing on my sofa, I see that nothing good is on the tube

Maybe now I can finish the novel that I started on last week

But as I make my way down the hall and open my bedroom door

I have absolutely no idea of what it was that I intended  to seek


I know full well that my brain still exists

It still resides exactly where it was yesterday

Hopefully tomorrow will be somewhat clearer

As I walk through the fog that is changing my life’s way

    Thanks for the pingback, and sorry it’s taken me so long to reply.

    I really like this poem. It capture brain fog perfectly, and conveys the horrible feeling of not being able to find your own thoughts. Thank you for a very powerful and effective poem.
