Morning Mists

The fog lays heavy and white over the land
for the first four hours after the sun has risen,
slowly creeping up like the curtain of a stage
to leave water droplets and small puddles
in the red dirt without the Pilbara sunshine.
The moisture clings to the spider web lines
illuminating the invisible strands with white,
making them seem thicker, almost iridescent,
under the shadows of the morning clouds.
