Five Free Verse Poems About Mist

The Whispering Veil

In the quiet of dawn, a clandestine shroud descends,
The mist, a whispering veil, cloaking the world in mystery.
It tiptoes over the dew-kissed grass,
And nestles between the slumbering trees.
Each leaf, each blade of grass,
Becomes a secret story waiting to be told,
Under the hushed orchestra of the morning mist.

The Grey Wanderer

From the mountain’s crest to the ocean’s edge,
The mist, a grey wanderer, roams untamed and free.
A nomadic spirit, threading through valley and over hill,
Its passage leaves no trace, save for the softened outlines of reality.
The world is rendered a dream,
In the gentle embrace of the wandering mist.

The Silent Storyteller

The mist, a silent storyteller, spins tales in the air.
Each swirling wisp, a character, a plot twist, an emotion,
Weaving an ever-changing narrative of life.
It speaks not in words but in impressions,
In the muted hues and softened sounds,
Of a world seen through the lens of the storytelling mist.

The Ethereal Artist

The mist, an ethereal artist, paints with a palette of whispers and shadows.
It blurs the harsh lines, softens the stark contrasts,
And bathes the world in a gentle, diffused light.
Every tree, every stone, every creature,
Becomes a masterpiece under the brush of the misty morn.

The Unseen Dancer

The mist, an unseen dancer, twirls in the silent ballet of dawn.
It pirouettes around the sleeping flowers,
And leaps over the still, reflective ponds.
Invisible yet palpable, silent yet expressive,
Each graceful movement is a symphony of serenity,
Performed by the dancing mist.

Do you see the dawn, shrouded in a gentle veil?
It’s the morning mist, a sight beyond the pale.
Unfolding tales of day’s first light, an ethereal trail,
In hushed tones, as soft as a lover’s tale.

What is an elegy

Five Elegy Poems About Mist

1. Elegy to the Morning Mist

In the morning’s early light, a spectral ghost arises,
Softly cloaking the world in a shroud of gray.
A silent whisper of the dawn, it gently surprises,
Caressing the earth as night gives way to day.

An ethereal dance with the rising sun,
It clings to the trees, the hills, the streams.
A fleeting moment, then it’s done,
Vanishing like the remnants of dreams.

By Dan Higgins 2024

2. Elegy to the Mountain Mist

Above the world, where the air is thin,
The mist swirls in a ballet of grace.
It weaves between the peaks and within,
Clothing the mountains in gossamer lace.

A ghostly waltz on the mountain high,
Its presence felt, but never seen.
With the wind it sighs, a mournful cry,
As it fades with the dawn, leaving no trace it’s been.

By Dan Higgins 2024

3. Elegy to the Sea Mist

Upon the ocean’s vast expanse, the mist does play,
A soft caress on the water’s skin.
It mingles with the spray, in a delicate ballet,
Obscuring where the sea ends and the sky begins.

A maritime shroud, both haunting and divine,
Its tendrils reach for the distant shore.
A fleeting specter, bound by no confine,
Gone with the morning’s light, to be seen no more.

By Dan Higgins 2024

4. Elegy to the Forest Mist

In the heart of the forest, the mist does dwell,
A phantasmal blanket, a mystical spell.
It weaves through the trees, a silent serenade,
A dance of shadows in the emerald glade.

A veil of mystery, it softens the light,
Turning day into twilight, blurring sight.
With the sun’s first rays, it takes its leave,
A memory only the trees perceive.

By Dan Higgins 2024

5. Elegy to the Evening Mist

As dusk descends, and the world grows still,
The evening mist begins its gentle thrill.
It rises from the earth, a spectral tide,
In the fading light, a place to hide.

A ghostly echo of the day now past,
Its presence fleeting, it cannot last.
As stars take their place in the night’s vast dome,
The mist dissolves, leaving night to roam.

By Dan Higgins 2024

What Types Of Poetry Have Rhyming In?

Five Rhyming Poems About Mist

1. The Silent Veil

In the morning’s soft light, a whispering hiss,

A world concealed in a silken mist.

Trees stand as shadows, their details missed,

An ethereal beauty, in grey and white kissed.

Mountains cloak themselves in this spectral shroud,

While rivers flow silent, their babbling sound drowned.

The world is remade, its sharp edges smoothed,

In the morning’s mist, all harshness is soothed.

Through the foggy labyrinth, we blindly persist,

Lost in the enigma of the swirling mist.

The path unclear, like a forgotten tryst,

A journey through the unknown, with a spectral twist.

Every step forward, a daring gamble,

Our way lit only by the moon’s soft tremble.

Yet in this maze, there’s a beauty so humble,

A world transformed by the mist’s gentle rumble.

By Dan Higgins, 2024

3. The Ghostly Cloak

Dawn breaks, and with it brings a ghostly cloak,

The land enveloped in the mist’s soft soak.

A scene from a dream, or a painter’s stroke,

A silent serenade, the morning mist spoke.

Turning the mundane into stories untold.

In its embrace, we find a courage bold,

A world reborn, in the dawn’s silver and gold.

In the valley below, where the cool winds list,

Twirls the playful ballet of the morning mist.

A dance full of grace, in the dawn’s amethyst,

An ephemeral performance, too beautiful to resist.

It spins and twirls, an elegant waltz,

A ballet performed without a single false.

An ode to the dawn, a praise so heartfelt,

In the dance of the mist, the beauty of the world is felt.

By Dan Higgins, 2024

5. The Mist’s Embrace

As night surrenders to the day’s first light,

The world wakes up to the mist’s gentle bite.

A soft caress, an embrace so tight,

The comforting blanket of the mist’s white knight.

A sense of peace, in the mist’s soft clutch.
