Painting a Scene

October, Near Jefferson Barracks

Crisp morning fog
rises off the river,
settles on Illinois fields.

The semicircle
superstructure
of the bridge
disappears
just above car height.

Traffic slips between
the turbulent water below
and gray absence above,
pushes through
to clear sky,

to trees
readying
for another winter passage.
