THE MIST

The fog has engulfed the car
like a wet blanket.

I peer out the window,
wipers swishing,
as if peering at the picture tube
of an old TV set
that just can’t quite seem
to get the channel tuned in.

Flashes of color:
RED
GREEN
YELLOW
WHITE
flash around me
but each source remains aloof,
shrouded in the veil of vapor.

Is this how my mind is?
Truth,
trapped behind the veil of my ego
just waiting to be acknowledged?

The mist will soon be burned away
when the sun begins to peek through.
The murkiness lifted
so all may be clearly seen.

If it were only that simple
to burn away ego.

Sometimes it seems
the mist just leaves out of habit.
Everything changes out of habit.

If it were only that simple for ego.
