Island fog

Waking in fog for the third straight day:
"The Maine Experience" stakes its claim,
teaching us once again
to live in the moment: this cool, moist air,
this amazing fog, these island sounds –
bell buoys, fog horns, the unseen gull,
day after day of nothing-in-particular to do
and no bright days to make us feel bad
about doing it.
How blessed are the details,
the exact points of breath,
the abstractions of thought.
Blessed be what is missing,
blessed be what is not.
