Slice of Life/Day in a Poem (Day 20): Traveling Through Soup

(This is for the Slice of Life challenge, hosted by Two Writing Teachers. We write on Tuesdays about the small moments in the larger perspective and then all through March — every single day  …  You write, too.)

In fog as thick
as thoughts –
we ought to
slow the car down,
so we do,
then heavy rain arrives:
it’s like traveling
through soup

Peace (safely home),
Kevin

  1. This is so beautiful. I can see the fog, no pun intended. The simile starts this short poem of so well,
    “In fog as thick
    as thoughts –”
    Where I live the rain is just as you described it in your second simile.

  2. As I look at the window this morning … I think I know the soup you are referring to. Glad you are home safely.

  3. Kevin, you
    Have a way with a simile here! Your teaser had me at traveling, and what a comparison! Now I have a new phrase when it’s raining so hard I can’t see to drive! Ever Clever, creative Kevin! I always love the way your mind works

  4. Now you’ve got me wondering if I need to meditate more, to manage the soupy-thick-thoughts in my head. I feel a lot of “heavy rain” coming in the usual chaos of the last nine weeks of school.

  5. Rainy days are sometimes welcome, as yesterday’s was. But I am glad I was at home, visibility was no issue for me. Wishing you sunshine today!

  6. “In fog as thick as thoughts…” I think that will forever change my fog experiences! (And they will be coming soon, fog=spring in these parts!)
